Congresswoman Kuster Statement on New Hampshire Commuter Rail Study
Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) today released the following statement after the New Hampshire Legislature’s House Capitol Budget Overview Committee approved the use of a federal credit to help fund a study on the economic viability of expanding commuter rail in the Capitol Corridor region.
“I’m very encouraged to hear that the Committee has re-opened the door to studying the expansion of commuter rail in the Capitol Corridor, and I urge the Executive Council to move this project forward. Expanding commuter rail in this region is the right thing to do for our workers, our businesses, and our state’s economy, and it will bring significant economic benefits to Nashua and beyond. I’m also glad that if approved, the study will analyze the costs of this project so that we can make rail a reality in a fiscally responsible way.”
