State Rep Says Amtrak Is Not Coming To Rockford

(Rockford, IL) — Amtrak rail service is not coming to Rockford any time soon according to one State Representative. Congressman John Cabello said Amtrak representative Ray Lang told him yesterday that service between Rockford and Chicago is not happening. Former Governor Quinn announced last year that the state would provide 223-million-dollars to bring Amtrak to the area but funding for the project was put on hold when Governor Rauner took office.
