Tell Congress: Include trains in the airline relief package

March 17, 2020

There is an $850 billion stimulus bill moving through Congress very quickly.  The Senate is hoping to act this week.

The airlines are asking for $45 billion, and the airports are asking for $10 billion, to help them overcome the drastic reduction in travel in the last two weeks.

Fast, frequent and dependable trains are just as important as airlines in keeping the country connected.  Amtrak, Brightline and commuter railroads are feeling the same impacts as the airlines.

It is urgent that you get a message to your representatives today:Include trains in the airline relief package!
