Statement of Anne Canby, Director, OneRail Coalition
On the Biden Administration Infrastructure Proposal
April 1, 2021
The OneRail Coalition applauds the Administration for prioritizing rail as part of President Biden’s infrastructure proposal, and for recognizing rail’s role as part of the solution to climate issues. Rail is a critical component of bolstering the economy and job growth as well as addressing climate change and highway congestion.
We look forward to working with the Administration and Congress as discussions progress to advance sustainable, bipartisan policies that underscore the benefits of a strong freight and passenger rail system in advancing climate solutions, providing well-paying jobs, and ensuring safe, efficient transportation of goods and people.
