Congress is now considering a Transportation, Housing and Urban Development (THUD) bill that would drastically cut critical funding for both Amtrak and passenger rail plans for states like Ohio.
Passenger rail, especially the proposed 3 C&D corridor, would connect Ohio's businesses and communities, provide more opportunities for all Ohioans to travel and find work, create jobs, and foster economic growth.
All Aboard Ohio's Response:
All Aboard Ohio is one of the signatories to a letter the RPA sent to the Senate Appropriations Committee, and we also had a hand in writing it. We also drafted a testimony asking the Senate to reject the House proposal and fully fund Amtrak's budget request. Click the links below to view the documents in full.
