Court ruling over oil train in Colorado angers Utah Senator


Speculation mounts whether developers of the Uinta Basin Railway halted in Colorado by a U.S. Court of Appeals will appeal the federal court ruling that derailed the project?

At the same time, the ruling angered Utah U.S. Sen. Mike Lee who said in a social media post the court ruling  “represents a missed opportunity for our communities to thrive” and “a needless setback for Utah.”

The proposed 88-mile railway would carry oil from eastern Utah eventually to the Cushing Hub in Oklahoma.

“The Uinta Basin Railway is not just about American energy: it’s about jobs, economic growth, and the prosperity of our great state,” Lee posted on Facebook. “It is deeply concerning to see decisions that appear more influenced by ‘woke environmentalism’ rather than grounded, data-driven evaluations.”
