Statement of Devon Barnhart, Director, OneRail Coalition
On Passage by the U.S. Senate

of the

Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act

August 10, 2021

OneRail applauds the Senate and the Biden/Harris Administration on the passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. From capital infrastructure projects to rail safety — this bill makes historic investments that will be transformational to our nation’s rail system. OneRail called on Congress to provide significant increases for rail and transit programs to meet the growing need for rail transportation to move people and freight. This bill represents a great leap forward. We commend the Senate bipartisan infrastructure group for recognizing the importance of infrastructure investments and prioritizing transformative levels of funding for rail and transit programs.
