Illinois budget sets out $12M increase for Amtrak
SPRINGFIELD – One area of state government that’s not facing cuts under Illinois’ worst-ever budget is its support for passenger rail service.
Gov. Pat Quinn is seeking to increase spending on Amtrak service in the state by $12 million for the fiscal year beginning July 1.
The (Bloomington) Pantagraph reported that the 46 percent increase would bring total spending to $38 million for routes from Chicago to St. Louis, Carbondale and Galesburg.
