Share this post

The state of Illinois today announced it would pay an additional nine-million dollars to keep local Amtrak routes running, bring its total in subsidies to 37-million dollars. The move leaves Indiana as only state left to reach an agreement out of the 19 states affected. A 2008 law passed by Congress shifts most of the costs for shorter routes from the federal government to the states. Indiana is expected to need about three-million dollars by Wednesday in order to keep the Hoosier State line running four-days a week from Indianapolis to Chicago.
