Rep. Davis Statement on Metro Derailment

Rep. Tom Davis, R-Va., ranking member and former chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, issued a statement on today's Orange Line train derailment. Davis said it called attention to the need for stable federal funding for Metro:

"Today's accident serves only to demonstrate again the need for the Metro legislation I have proposed in Congress. My legislation would beef up capital funding that could be used to prepare tracks and other facilities to operate properly on even the hottest and coldest days and to ensure Metro is ready to respond when systems inevitably fail. It also would ensure better oversight and real consistency in Metro management."
