February 24, 2019 – The recent Town Hall Meetings in Tomah and Portage have passed, but our work is far from finished. Our elected representatives in Madison are now and will continue to be working on the budget bill for several months. We need to encourage both Senators and Assembly Representatives to earmark money for the Second Daily Amtrak Train to help finish up the preliminary studies: Finishing the environmental impact studies and The Service Development Plan are next in line for this multi-year process. Without this allocation, this train could be set back years before it comes to fruition. To learn more, check out this video.
The attached PDF file ( WisARPinfo Call To Action ) has some instructions on how to find out who your legislators are in Wisconsin. Write them an e-mail! Make a phone call to their office. But please do not sit by and allow this chance to pass. Let your elected representatives in Madison know that you are hopeful the Second Daily Amtrak Train along the Empire Builder route is important to you!
