Obama Goal: 80% of Americans connected by high-speed trains!
We applaud the President for establishing this bold and visionary goal. High-speed trains are a critical investment in our future. They will cut travel times and cost while reducing hassle, making it easier for people to meet more often, leading to a more productive and more innovative economy.
As we have seen in the past year, achieving the President's goal will not be easy.
We are looking forward to working with the President to create a bold vision for high-speed rail in the Midwest and helping to identify innovative ways to finance this critical asset.
