Protect and expand Amtrak

I am very upset with Governor Rauner’s proposal to cut Illinois’ Amtrak routes by 40 percent. More people, including the millennial generation, are using Amtrak. Since the millennial generation is notorious for ditching automobiles, the millennials need to get out and vote so we do not elect another anti-Amtrak governor. As a 41-year-old member of Midwest High Speed Rail Association, I am urging the millennials to write their elected officials and newspaper editors to protect and expand Amtrak.
