"[Rep Jake Fey] was in Boise last week as part of the Pacific Northwest Economic Region's annual summit… one that got news coverage was a panel discussion with other state legislators on current and future opportunities for states to work together in support of passenger rail."
“This week was rail week in Boise! We welcomed the Greater Northwest Passenger Rail Summit to the City of Trees where we had the privilege of hearing from Stephen Gardner, CEO of Amtrak, as the keynote speaker. Amtrak, in collaboration with local and state governments across the nation and supported by the federal Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill, is actively working to revitalize passenger rail travel in the United States.” https://www.cityofboise.org/news/mayor/2023/july/in-the-know-e-newsletter-july-21-2023/ #RailSmmit23 #Boise
