The TAHSR Reply in Opposition to Petition to Reopen to the Surface Transportation Board was submitted Thursday afternoon with over 1,900 verified statements from impacted citizens, as well as County Judges and State Senators and Representatives. Texas & Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association also included their opposition letter within our reply. Upon reading, you will find a very strong case for the STB not taking jurisdiction of this project, but also some clear indicators that should they choose to, they must give the required “hard look” at the finances of the project. We all can anticipate what that will reveal about this ill-conceived, ill-fated project. Thank you for your support with this reply and we look forward to an STB decision in our favor once the STB nominees are approved by Congress.
