Passenger Rail Plans in Limbo

What's next for SunRail?

What's next for high speed rail in Florida?

The answers remain unclear, as The Orlando Sentinel reports. Both projects are now in limbo and awaiting decisions from the office of Governor Rick Scott.

Scott had the opportunity to address these issues today when he announced his budget proposals at a Tea Party rally at the First Baptist Church of Eustis, but did not.

FCRP supports both projects, as well as the return of Amtrak service New Orleans-Florida and new service over the FEC.

And we encourage you to remind the Governor about the importance of these and other passenger rail projects for Florida by making your voice heard.

Contact information for Governor Scott can be found on his website here:  http://www.flgov.com/contact-gov-scott/.

Speak up for rail!
