Big Win in Springfield!
Capital Bill Passes - Passenger Rail Projects Funded
The Illinois General Assembly has passed the "Capital Bill".
We will have more analysis in our regular newsletter this week, but there are a few items that we can celebrate right away. The bill funds:
- New service to Rockford
- New service to Moline
- Track improvements for Chicago - Champaign - Carbondale
- Track improvements in Springfield, IL
- Expanded Metra service into Kendall County
- A big next step for CREATE
The Midwest High Speed Rail Association would like to thank all the legislators who supported improved passenger rail in Illinois.
And thanks to all of our members who communicated with their legislators through the course of the Spring session.
