NO OMISSIONS, NOR EMISSIONS (via Bartman)

Kentucky included on study for high speed rail (Rich Miller, 1/29/10, WFIE)

Kentucky governor Steve Beshear has announced that the Federal Railroad Administration has approved a $250,000 grant to study the feasibility of high-speed passenger service on a rail corridor that includes Louisville.

Beshear joined with Govs. Phil Bredesen of Tennessee and Sonny Purdue of Georgia in supporting a study of the corridor that runs from Chicago to Atlanta, through Louisville and Nashville, Tennessee.

"Our goal, ultimately, is to see the national high-speed rail system revised and enhanced to include this corridor," Gov. Beshear said. "We believe this would correct an omission in the nationwide network – especially in terms of a continuous passenger rail corridor from Chicago to Florida."
