Washington, D.C. - The President of the Colorado Passenger Rail Association (ColoRail) and an At-Large National Representative of the Rail Passengers Association, James Souby of Colorado, will testify today before the U.S. Senate on what comes next for Amtrak and the U.S. passenger rail network. The hearing, held by the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, comes at a time of renewed scrutiny of Amtrak’s National Network, with Congressional leaders defending the importance of maintaining service on all existing routes.
Titled “Amtrak: Next Steps for Passenger Rail,” the hearing will examine the implementation of the rail title of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act. The committee will also ask rail experts about what priorities must be addressed in reauthorizing the FAST Act, which expires at the end of fiscal year 2020.
Souby will defend the right of rural and small communities --
