Amtrak CEO Alex Kummant coming to Springfield this Thursday

Exciting developments for Amtrak Illinois:

The House Rail Committee, led by Chair Elaine Nekritz (D-Des Plaines) and Minority Spokesman Don Moffitt (R-Galesburg) will hold their second annual oversight hearing on Amtrak Illinois this Thursday at 10 am in Room 122B of the Capitol. Last year, then-Board Chair David Laney came to testify. This year, Amtrak CEO Alex Kummant will participate.

There will be a press conference at 1:30 pm as well.

This is how we will continue to expand Amtrak service in the Midwest -- with a strong institutional relationship between the State, Amtrak and the host railroads (who, after all, need to make money delivering trains quickly and on-time to their stations).
