SunRail Through More Polk County?

Congressman Darren Soto wants more SunRail through parts of Polk County and advocates for it in this recent editorial in the Lakeland Ledger:

Polk's TPO has studied expanding SunRail further into Polk, so the support comes at a critical time:

Soto sees the merit in connecting SunRail to Brightline's planned Tampa-Orlando extension. There is no mention in his editorial of extending SunRail to the Amtrak station in Downtown Lakeland.
