STPP DEMANDS PORT AUTHORITY NOT USE TAXPAYER DOLLARS FOR CONSTRUCTION OF NEW TRANSLOADING FACILITY
The Utah Inland Port Authority (UIPA) recently announced its intention to build a new transloading facility to move shipping containers between rail and trucks, using taxpayer money to increase the profits of giant corporate land holders, such as Rio Tinto and Colmena Group.
UPHE and the Stop the Polluting Port Coalition (STPP) are circulating a sign-on letter to James Rogers, Chair of the UIPA Board, demanding that no action be taken to fund the transloading facility at the June 16 UIPA board meeting, and that the public be given complete information with a 60-day public comment period before any future action.
STPP will hold a press conference at the Inland Port to help make the public aware of this issue. We invite you to join us at the Press Conference.
