Call your senator for high speed rail

It may be lame duck season, but there is still important legislation on the table. The Michigan Senate is voting on HB 6484, which would provide the required matching state funds to secure the $161 million in federal money for the Detroit to Chicago high speed rail line. Transportation Riders United is asking you to call your state senator today and ask them to support the bill. Not sure who your state senator is? Check out this helpful webpage.

Just keep in mind G.H.'s cautionary tale about pork.
