Congress Member Lobby for Sunrail

April 27th, 2009 by flanews

The CSX Sunrail deal appears dead in its tracks. To give the legislation a boost, US Representatives John Mica and Corrine Brown traveled to Tallahassee to tell state lawmakers they could lose millions if they dont approve the deal this year. Mica says federal dollars for Sunrail could end up in Texas or New York if Florida doesnt act soon.

Now we are at a juncture. The contract does expire the 30th, and something has to be done or we go back and we could lose, said Mica.

A provision that protects CSX if an accident happens on its tracks is helping keep the legislation down.
