Virtual Hill Meetings
Congress will be voting to finalize the passage of its ambitious infrastructure bill in September. With the policies and funding levels largely finalized, now is the time to begin working with your Congressional delegation to highlight projects and corridors that could benefit from the additional intercity passenger rail funding advocates have secured in the infrastructure bill.
On Monday (9/20), Rail Passengers staff will talk about the final shape of federal grant programs, and how you can help liaise between federal, municipal and state officials to ensure your state benefits from future rounds of funding.
Don’t forget to reach out to your Congressional representatives to schedule your virtual meetings for the week of Sept. 19th. Once you secure those meetings, remember to report them to the Association; the meeting submission form can be accessed here.
"Thank you to Jim Mathews and the Rail Passengers Association for presenting me with this prestigious award. I am always looking at ways to work with the railroads and rail advocates to improve the passenger experience."
