Coal train traffic affects Missoula by exposing our communities to coal
dust, diesel fumes, and noise pollution and by adding to climate change
that impacts all Montanans.  Despite this, federal regulators have chosen
not to hold a hearing in Missoula on the Tongue River Railroad, a project
in Eastern Montana whose sole purpose would be to funnel more coal trains
onto the rail line that passes through Missoula and many other Montana
towns.  This Thursday, June 4th, nonprofit organizations in Missoula will
hold a People's Hearing on the Tongue River Railroad to make sure that
Missoulians' concerns about this project are heard.  The event is free and
open to the public.

At the People’s Hearing you’ll hear an overview of the railroad’s impacts
on Montana and learn how to craft the most effective public comments
possible.  You’ll then have a chance record comments verbally or in
writing.  All comments will be delivered to the Surface Transportation
Board. Please join us!
