Join us July 22nd at 3pm Eastern, when Rail Passengers senior staff will host the third event in our advocacy webinar series. Registration will close on Monday, July 20th. Space is limited to 475 participants so reserve your spot now.
In this briefing, we will:
Walk through the amendments and updates to the INVEST in America Act (H.R. 2) and analyze its prospects in the Senate now that the bill has passed the full House;
Cover the latest developments in the campaign to preserve daily service and prevent massive layoffs to the Amtrak workforce; and
Answer all your questions in a full session Q&A.
Submit your questions to [email protected] with the subject line "INVEST Act Questions". We are asking that any questions be submitted by Wednesday, July 15th so we can prepare to answer them during the event.

Meeting space is limited - so register now!
"The National Association of Railroad Passengers has done yeoman work over the years and in fact if it weren’t for NARP, I'd be surprised if Amtrak were still in possession of as a large a network as they have. So they've done good work, they're very good on the factual case."
