Speaker: Daniel L. Plaugher, Executive Director, Virginians for High Speed Rail

Last December, Virginia made "a bold pledge to significantly grow passenger rail service in the commonwealth this decade by building a new rail bridge over the Potomac River, adding new rail track in the Washington-to-Richmond corridor and buying hundreds of miles of passenger right of way from CSX."

And, in October, the Virginia Passenger Rail Authority (VPRA) met for the first time.

Watch the video where Plaugher overviews these big steps forward and how they came about.
