Testimonials

“The Uinta Basin Railway is important to Utah’s economy and rural Utah’s ability to diversify their economic streams. Mineral lease dollars generated from the extraction industry and exporting Utah’s crude to domestic and global markets means more revenue for the Permanent Impact Board, which benefits other infrastructure.” Utah Senate President J. Stuart Adams
“The railway represents an important opportunity to improve Utah’s energy infrastructure and environmental stewardship, and to enhance the rural economies of Eastern Utah. I add my voice to the various Utah counties and leaders of my state agencies in support of the project.” Utah Governor Gary R. Herbert
“This project is an example of innovative public-private partnership of industry partners, the public sector, and private sector answering America’s growing need for expanded infrastructure. The project could bring increased economic opportunity and job growth to this region. We ask for fair consideration of the Coalition’s application to authorize the Uinta Basin Railway project.” Utah Congressional Delegation, U.S. Senator Mitt Romney, U.S. Senator Mike Lee, Member of Congress Rob Bishop, Member of Congress Chris Stewart, Member of Congress John Curtis
