Moving Ahead For Progress In The 21St Century Act March 14, 2012
Bob Casey, D-PA
"With my amendment to S. 1813, States will now be able to fully and fairly evaluate capital and operating costs of different U.S. manufactured locomotives that are capable of meeting the statutory definition of high-speed rail, e.g., operating at 110 mph. A full and open process that fairly considers all locomotives that can operate at 110 mph will increase competition and ensure we maximize value for taxpayers."

Alaska Rural Roads System February 15, 2012
Jeff Merkley, D-OR
"To Members of the United States Senate: The time is now to pass S. 1813, [the] Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century [bill], the bipartisan highway bill crafted by the Environment and Public Works Committee. Last Thursday, eighty-five Senators voted to invoke cloture on the motion to proceed to S. 1813, clearly demonstrating bipartisan support for passing the highway and transit bill. While we are encouraged by this show of support, the undersigned organizations are concerned that progress may be impeded if non-germane amendments are offered as part of the deliberations on this bill. The organizations that we represent may hold diverse views on social, energy, and fiscal issues, but we are united in our desire to see immediate action on the Senate’s bipartisan highway and transit reauthorization measures."
