Budget Cuts

President Trump’s 2017 Budget eliminates funding from Amtrak’s long distance routes, including the Cardinal, the Crescent, the Silver Star, the Silver Meteor, the Palmetto, and the Auto Train which serve the citizens of Virginia; eliminates “New Start” transit grants; and greatly reduces “TIGER” grants.
