Pa. lawmakers discuss HSR funding with LaHood

Recommended Posts

Both of Pennsylvania’s U.S. senators and two of its U.S. representatives on Tuesday asked U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood for his help in getting $401 million needed to move ahead with a proposed Scranton to Hoboken, N.J., passenger rail project.


Last Thursday, hours after a list of 31 projects that would receive $8 billion in federal aid was announced – and did not include the Scranton project and another high-speed rail project for the Pittsburgh area – Sens. Arlen Specter, D-Philadelphia; and Bob Casey, D-Scranton, sent a letter to LaHood voicing their disappointment and requesting a face-to-face meeting.
