House Republicans have launched a full-scale attack on rail workers.

They've chosen to abandon the agreement negotiated between President Biden and House Speaker McCarthy and propose devastating cuts to the nation's transit system and hard-working Americans' retirement.

Send a letter to your representatives NOW and tell them to oppose any cuts to our nation’s railroads.

The funding proposals from Republican lawmakers gut Amtrak and transit agencies, as well as the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB), among others - hurting railroad workers, rail safety, and railroad retirees:

  1. Amtrak – $876 million – a 64% cut. By Amtrak’s estimates, 10,000 employees would be furloughed if these funding levels were to take effect.
  2. Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) $103 million – a 30% cut.
  3. Transit – $18.9 billion – an 11% cut. Just as transit and commuter rail systems are seeing the return of ridership, this budget proposal threatens to stop that progress and the jobs of thousands in transit.

Quickly and easily send a pre-written letter to your representatives telling them to oppose the House Appropriations Committee Fiscal Year (FY24) Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development (THUD) appropriations bill.
