President Trump Threatens Veto Over Passenger Rail Funding
Take Action Today!
June 19, 2019
The White House issued a veto threat against the fiscal 2020 funding bill, saying President Trump was "disappointed" at Congress for boosting investment in Amtrak instead of eliminating the National Network, as outlined in the President's budget request.
The White House also objected to language that prevents the U.S. DOT from clawing back grant funding from the California High-Speed Rail project.
This threat must not go unchallenged. Our elected officials need to hear from the passengers and communities that depend on these trains, whether your home station is in New York City or Newton, Kasas!
Congress is scheduled to vote this week. Call your Representative and let them know you support investment inpassenger rail!
