Act now: White House threatens to veto transportation bill over high-speed rail and Amtrak
White House staff have issued a threat of presidential veto against a fiscal 2020 “minibus” package. These bills include Amtrak’s regular $2 billion operating funds, as well as a provision that protects federal funding for California high-speed rail.
We’ve made it easy to send a message to your representatives and the president: Fund Amtrak and high-speed rail!
The bills are being debated on the House floor today. Please take action now.
