Action alert

Dear Great River Rail Supporters:

The Governor wants to hear from you! Take action now.

Funding for the Twin Cities-Milwaukee-Chicago (TCMC) Second Train could be included in the Governor’s bonding bill if he receives input from Minnesotans. To provide a second round-trip passenger train, $10 million in state funding is needed to match a federal grant application to construct track, signal and station improvements in Minnesota. Wisconsin will request funding from their legislature, and we need to work together! Click this link to provide your opinion before Nov. 30.

Provide your opinion!


After you click the link above, fill in your name, email, and zip code.

Select “Ramsey County” under Q4, Local entity requesting funding.
