Weigh in on expanded Milwaukee-Chicago Amtrak service

The best way to stick up for the Midwest rail service Scott Walker deliberately derailed is to register your support for expanding the service that he could not eliminate.

Here are the details:

WIS DOT has issued an Environmental Assessment for expanding Hiawatha service from 7 to 10 daily roundtrips.  (Or from 6 to 9, depending on whether you count the train that continues across the continent.)

In case for any reason you weren’t able to get to the public hearing in Milwaukee October 27, you can still express your support by submitting comments until November 15th:
