Amendment to Defund Amtrak

Sep. 6, 2017 | H.Amdt. 287 to H.R. 3354
This amendment by Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) to the Make America Secure and Prosperous Appropriations Act, 2018 (H.R. 3354) would have eliminated funding for Amtrak’s national rail network, a vital transportation link for millions of people, supports thousands of good paying jobs and provides enormous economic benefits across the nation. The amendment failed.

This is Bad for working people.
