How to easily contact your Senators and Representatives
It is so important to contact your state and national lawmakers regarding your support for pro-passenger rail legislation, or opposition to anti-passenger rail bills. If we are silent when Amtrak is attacked and passenger rail funds get drastic cuts, how are our Lawmakers to know how they are hurting the transportation system
that so many rely upon.
Members of Wisarp and rail fans in general can really help to protect passenger rail. Just a quick email on your Lawmaker’s official website ! Let’s let them know just how much support for passenger rail is out there ! This is so easy. (the steps described below may differ a little on some browsers)
