Illinois General Assembly Passes “Capital Bill”

Email from MHSRA:

Capital Bill Passes, passenger rail gains

The Illinois General Assembly has passed the "Capital Bill".

We will have more analysis in our regular newsletter this week, but there are a few items that we can celebrate right away. The bill funds:

New service to Rockford
New service to Moline
Track improvements for Chicago - Champaign - Carbondale
Track improvements in Springfield, IL
Expanded Metra service into Kendall County
A big next step for CREATE

The Midwest High Speed Rail Association would like to thank all the legislators who supported improved passenger rail in Illinois.

And thanks to all of our members who communicated with their legislators through the course of the Spring session.
If the Conductor is in charge of the train, then why is he promoted to Engineer?

Maybe my work on the Chicago-Quad Cities Line will actually happen after all. All hail the Cornfield Rocket! :D

Is Kendall County one of the counties paying the Metra tax?
