Join RenewLV in Supporting Federal Funding for High-Speed Rail


The vision for an integrated, national high-speed rail (HSR) network was introduced by President Obama earlier this year. If developed, this network would link Pennsylvania communities with expansive rail networks to the east and west while providing a convenient, comfortable way of traversing the Commonwealth.

As a partner in Transportation for America (or “T4A”), RenewLV–along with dozens of other organizations nationwide–is calling on the U.S. Senate to join with the House of Representatives in appropriating $4 billion for national high-speed rail in 2010. (The Senate has voted to cut this appropriation by more than two-thirds.)

It is important that your elected officials hear from you on this important funding issue. If you’re interested in seeing Pennsylvania become part of a national HSR network, please take a moment to voice your support.
