PORTAGE, Ind. (AP)
-- Two train projects in northwest Indiana could lose significant federal
funding under President Donald Trumpís proposed budget.
Indiana) Times reports the budget issued by Trumpís administration Thursday
calls for substantial cuts in federal spending, including to the Department
of Transportation. The cuts would eliminate the program that would provide
funds for the South Shore Lineís West Lake Corridor and Double Track NWI
The proposal limits
funding in the Federal Transit Administrationís Capital Investment Grant
program to projects that already have full funding grant agreements. Neither
of the projects in northwest Indiana has reached that level.
estimates show the West Lake project would require more than $300 million in
federal funds and the Double Track project would require about $145 million.
