Texas rail passenger progress

Progressive Railroading has word ot Texas developments, which are highlighted here.

Legislative efforts to pump state dollars into the Texas Rail Relocation and Improvement Fund cleared their first hurdle on March 30. A Texas Senate committee passed a bill and sent the measure to the full Senate.

The bill would tap into existing transportation-related fees to allocate about $90 million annually toward the Texas Rail Relocation and Improvement Fund. The funds would leverage bonding authority to help finance freight- and passenger-rail projects in the state.
