State Sen. Brandt Hershman (R-Buck Creek) made the following statement
today in response to the decision to keep the to keep the Hoosier State
passenger rail service operating between Indianapolis and Chicago:

STATEHOUSE (Oct. 15, 2013) — “Many hours of discussion and deliberation went into the decision announced today, and it couldn’t have been reached without the strong, bipartisan cooperation displayed by all parties involved.

“Improving the long-term costs and services associated with the Hoosier State line is not only essential to customers who use passenger rail, but also to taxpayers who fund this operation. I am grateful to Governor Pence, the mayors of the affected communities and INDOT representatives for their hard work and dedication to finding a solution that best serves Hoosiers everywhere.”

In the 2013 legislative session, Hershman authored an amendment to the state budget that allowed the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) to reallocate some of its funds to Amtrak for the performance of services or purchase of equipment. This reallocation is subject to review by the State Budget Committee and approval by the State Budget Agency.
