California’s Republican delegation has submitted a letter to Federal Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao requesting that she cancel $647 million in funding for Caltrain electrification. The GOP delegation explains their intention to hold back the High Speed Rail project, but these specific improvements are badly needed by Caltrain to improve service for local riders. Bay Area representatives have followed up with their own letter to Secretary Chao explaining the need for this funding to be preserved. This issue is explained in detail on the Green Caltrain site.
Call to Action: Green Caltrain would like as many folks as possible to submit emails to Secretary Chao via this link: http://org.salsalabs.com/o/741/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=21065
