From our friends at ColoRail:
Fall meeting coming up Sept. 17
We recently have seen some dramatic progress toward improved passenger rail. The U.S. Senate’s infrastructure bill would devote $66 billion toward Amtrak and some of that money could go toward Colorado’s Front Range rail project. At the state level, our legislature has established the Front Range Rail District, a legal entity that will plan the project and eventually refer to voters a referendum to fund construction.
You can learn more and help us succeed by attending ColoRail’s 2021 Fall Meeting on Friday, Sept. 17, at 12:00pm to 2:00pm. We had hoped to employ a hybrid meeting format, with both Zoom conferencing and in-person attendance. But with continuing COVID concerns, the board of directors has decided to hold the meeting online only.
We ask that participants pre-register. After registration, you will receive information on attending the Zoom meeting. Please sign up at: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZYtdOygqTIvHNaISIl8GkVyxt2ufb8iY94a

"I wish to extend my appreciation to members of the Rail Passengers Association for their steadfast advocacy to protect not only the Southwest Chief, but all rail transportation which plays such an important role in our economy and local communities. I look forward to continuing this close partnership, both with America’s rail passengers and our bipartisan group of senators, to ensure a bright future for the Southwest Chief route."
Senator Jerry Moran (R-KS)
