Senator Carl Levin is now a co-sponsor of S 294 -- we need more!

Good news: Michigan Senator Carl Levin has signed up as a co-sponsor of S. 294, the best pro-Amtrak legislation in the Congress in a decade.

The main improvement the bill makes is that it puts passenger rail on the same footing as every other transportation investment: multi-year funding. It also invests some capital dollars into the passenger rail network that state governments can match, like every other transportation investment.

That makes 2 Midwestern Senators that have signed up for the bill.

Let's get some more! Call your Senators this week and ask them to co-sponsor S. 294.
