Wisconsin's rival high-speed rail coalitions agree on some points

(The following appeared on the LaCrosse Tribune website on May 20, 2010.)

LACROSSE, Wisc. Two coalitions competing for a high-speed passenger rail segment between Madison and St. Paul said Wednesday they agree on the need for continued state investment in passenger rail, including completion of the planned Milwaukee-to-Madison line.

The joint press release by the The Empire Builder High Speed Rail Coalition and the West Central Wisconsin Rail Coalition also agrees on the need for more runs on current Amtrak routes and initiating passenger rail service from St. Paul to Eau Claire.

The Empire Builder coalition wants the Madison-to-St. Paul high-speed rail segment to follow Amtrak's current Empire Builder route through La Crosse and Winona, Minn., while West Central coalition wants it to go through Eau Claire.

The press release said the two groups met May 7 in Arcadia.
