Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2010

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. COHEN. I speak in favor of the manager's amendment. This is a very important bill putting America back to work and working on infrastructure and transportation systems that are so important to America's economic vitality and growth. But also, rail transportation is important. Rail is important in many ways, both in a commercial way and in a passenger way.

This particular manager's amendment puts an additional $3 million into the Federal Railroad Administration's Research and Development account. It's certainly the hope of many Members that this will allow for studies of high-speed rail, one of which will go from Little Rock to Memphis, and other studies, so that we can have more high-speed rail and less use of automobiles safe with the environment, and make passenger traffic more available to more people at a more reasonable cost.
