U.S. Committee approves Passenger Rail Reform Legislation

Virginia Rail ExpressThe U.S. Transportation and Infrastructure Committee approved bipartisan legislation that improves the infrastructure, reduces costs, creates greater accountability and transparency, leverages private sector resources, and accelerates project delivery for Amtrak and the Nation’s passenger rail transportation system.
“This is a good (Passenger Rail Reform and Investment Act of 2015) reform bill that firmly moves passenger rail towards greater transparency and accountability, and forces Amtrak to operate like a true business,” Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster said.
“Passage of the Passenger Rail Reform and Investment Act is an investment in our infrastructure that will make Amtrak operate more like a business – better responding to the needs of its customers and focusing on efficiency, transparency, and cost-saving,” Hazardous Materials Subcommittee Chairman Jeff Denham said.
