Diverse Perspectives. Clear Consensus.

 

AIRNet-21 has long been under consideration by congressional committees, research and policy think tanks, and government-convened commissions and panels such as the Amtrak Reform Council. The Government Accountability Office, the Congressional Research Service, and the US DOT Inspector General have also extensively studied it.

 

Increasingly, from the diverse perspectives of thought leaders and stakeholders, a clear consensus emerges: AIRNet-21 is good public policy that provides an urgently needed  sustainable funding source for Amtrak infrastructure.
