Editorial - Can Rail Project Be Rescued

According to an editorial in the Loudoun Times, "Can Rail Project Be Rescued," it's doubtful the Dulles Rail Project will get off the ground without the federal government's financial help.

The editorial says that the U.S. Congress could step in and give the project legs, granting an exemption from the regulations governing the FTA's New Starts program, from which the project is seeking the $900 million. Further, the editorial says that private investors could get involved, and that our lawmakers must step up to support Gov. Kaine's approach and insist that the agencies involved deliver.
