Ask your senators to support HSR

May 03, 2022

Please ask your senators to join a sign-on letter regarding the addition of dedicated high-speed rail funds to the FY2023 budget.

Last year, we celebrated the passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which appropriated substantial funds for intercity passenger trains.  However, that is just the foundation. Congress also needs to appropriate money every year to create a growing nationwide program.

Additionally, the IIJA did not fund the high-speed rail account.

Senator Ossoff (D-GA) and Senator Padilla (D-CA) are leading a sign-on letter to the Transportation Housing and Urban Development (THUD) appropriations committee requesting that $10 billion be allocated to world-standard high-speed rail in the FY2023 budget.

Please send an email asking your senators to contact Senator Ossoff’s office to add their names to the letter.
