Amtrak CEO Stephen Gardner Statement on FY23 Appropriations Bill

“This funding will allow Amtrak to continue to operate and maintain America’s railroad in Fiscal Year 2023, including making important investments across our National Network, Northeast Corridor assets, and partnering with states on short-distance corridors. The Omnibus bill provides sufficient resources to meet our National Network’s capital and operating needs in FY23, ensuring our long-distance trains will continue connecting rural towns to the national transportation network throughout America.  We thank the House and Senate Appropriations Committees for their hard work and continued support for Amtrak. We look forward to Congress considering this essential spending package over the coming days.”
