High Speed Rail

Create a comprehensive, fully electric, national high speed rail network. A national rail system will boost our economy, manufacturing sector, end oil dependency, reduce congestion, and cut our carbon footprint. I fully support a rail system that will interconnect major and regional hubs across the nation. Here in Wisconsin's 6th District, this would provide vastly increased access to Green Bay, Milwaukee, Chicago, Minneapolis, and more. Below is a proposal from progressive.org. It's vital that we make major investments into a high-speed rail system to improve ease of transportation, reduce use of fossil fuels, and connect residents to more opportunity.
