Professional Webinar with Congressman Seth Moulton and the former Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood about the new stimulus plan for $205 Billion for High Speed Rail to revive the U.S. economy
WASHINGTON - June 2, 2020 - PRLog -- The US High Speed Rail Association is pleased to announce the second high-speed rail webinar in its professional webinar series: American High Speed Rail & Rebuilding the U.S. Economy, which will take place June 16, 2020 at 2pm EDT. This webinar brings together policy leaders who will be discussing the new stimulus package for $205 billion for a major investment in a national high-speed rail network.

The webinar will focus on stimulating the U.S. economy creating jobs during and following the current pandemic shutdown, while also building the 21st century transportation system America needs. The proposed $205 Billion will also help bring back American manufacturing jobs for the short and long term by building the trains and materials here in America.

Congressman Moulton was elected to Congress in 2014 following his military service in Iraq. He has been a long time supporter of high speed rail and understands the many benefits that a national high speed rail network will bring to America.

Secretary LaHood served as the US Transportation Secretary during the Obama Administration. He led the process to set up the national high speed rail program by utilizing 2009 stimulus funds as seed money for the initial projects.

"We're excited to have such esteemed transportation leaders participate in this webinar, and we are grateful for their leadership and work bringing 21st century transportation to America." – Andy Kunz, President & CEO, US High Speed Rail Association
