Rail Security Rises to the Forefront

Attempted and successful rail bombings put Congressional focus on rail security

Biden said after the vote that the Senate would regret not spending more to improve rail security.

Gregg recommended using other funding sources, such as spending a greater portion of the more $1 billion annual subsidy for Amtrak on rail security and capital improvements. In addition, states and citiescould use their homeland security grants on rail security, Gregg said.
