More choices for better transportation

Missouri senators push Chicago-St. Louis high speed rail

More politics and positive words. The story is here.

Rep. Charlie Schlottach (R-Owensville) is the chairman of Missouri’s Transportation and Economic Development Committee. He also chairs the Midwest Regional Rail Commission that comprises 13 states.

Schlottach says transportation funding has always been a matter of contention in the Capitol, but that attitudes are changing. “People are demanding choices,” he says, and many of them indicate that travel by rail is among the choices they want as a viable choice.

Centrally located, Missouri had a lot of potential for conventional fast trains.
