Speaker DeLeo Defends House Transportation Bill

Instead of going with the Governor’s proposed $1.9 billion Transportation bill that included funding for Southcoast Rail, the Massachusetts House adopted a $500-million plan, that contains language that prioritizes the commuter rail project,  but contains no earmarked funding.

Speaking in New Bedford on Thursday, House Speaker Robert DeLeo says the language is an important step, and he understands what Southcoast Rail means to the region.
