The future of intercity passenger rail service in the U.S. has come to a critical juncture. Amtrak continues to rely heavily on federal subsidies -- over $1 billion in recent years -- & operating losses have remained high. In addition, Amtrak will require billions of dollars to address deferred maintenance. These needs for Amtrak come at a time when the nation faces long-term fiscal challenges. Reexamining the federal role & expenditures on intercity passenger rail service will be difficult because opinions differ about what this service should be. This report contains the testimony of Hecker before the Nat. Surface Transportation Policy & Revenue Study Commission on Jan. 17, 2007, about issues in the recent report. Charts & tables.
