RailPAC will be asking California and Nevada Senators to write in support of their colleagues.  Please support our efforts by writing to Feinstein and Harris, or Cortez Masto and Heller if you are in Nevada quoting the above news report.  Any curtailment in the operation of the “Chief” sets a very serious precedent for the national system which we cannot let pass.
