Rail advocates speak out at state Capitol

Here's a video that the state Senate Republicans made on Friday featuring a couple of commuter rail advocates who came to speak in favor of state Sen. Jason Welch's bill to shift state money to the proposed commuter rail line between Hartford and Waterbury instead of the busway pushed by the state Department of Transportation. Take a look.

It's good to see that Jason has our best interest in mind . Gotta cut that spending . Dump that "budget" . It only raises expenditures AND taxes .

Yes, passenger and freight rail should rule. It fits with the National rail initiative. Buses can still be used to bring passengers to/from the rail stations.
