Restore funding to the Blue Water & Pere Marquette Amtrak trains sign now

The Blue Water and Pere Marquette trains will end on August 10th 2006 unless we can persuade 1 person to put the $1 million back into the budget for Amtrak,Which would have to come from supplemental money.





Senator Shirley Johnson (Chair of the Senate Transportation Committee) continues to support funding for Indian Trails and Greyhound and she is anti-Amtrak. She also voted against funding for Amtrak last year.
