Railroad Escrow Account passes both chambers


After stalling for a short while in the House, SB 2861 passed both chambers in the final hours of the 97th Illinois General Assembly. The IDOT–Railroad Escrow Account bill establishes a fund to be used on maintenance of the higher speed rail line being developed from Chicago to St. Louis. MPC supports this intelligent approach to managing project maintenance costs. Read the letter of support to Sen. Sandoval and Rep. Burke.
