Comments on Tongue River Railroad proposal due Jan 11th

http://www.northernplains.org/trr-comments-due-jan-11/

In October, the Tongue River Railroad Company filed a new application for a permit to build a coal-hauling line through the Tongue River Valley. This long-proposed project renews its attempt to cut the valley in half, abusing the power of eminent domain to destroy good Montana ranchland in order to ship Montana coal to China.

The Surface Transportation Board has held “scoping” hearings in rural four southeastern Montana communities, where hundreds of people turned out to oppose the railroad.

However, you still have until January 11 to send your comments. Your comments are very important, because this is your opportunity to list all your concerns that the new environmental impact statement (EIS) should address.

You can send in your comments online today using the following link: http://www.stb.dot.gov/Ect1/ecorrespondence.nsf/incoming?OpenForm.
