Let's continue with upgrades to the Waterbury Rail Line

February 26, 2020


I delivered testimony before the Transportation Committee in support of Senate Bill 155. Rep. Butler and I made the case for additional improvements along the line to support commuters and the region's businesses up and down the Valley. The Waterbury Rail Line is vital to the region and state for economic growth and opportunity. That's why the state needs to continue improvements such as new engines, new rail cars and double-tracking to give commuters more options and to grow the grand list for cities and towns throughout the region. This is an opportunity we cannot pass up.
