Advocacy for improved intercity passenger service for the Midwest and the nation as a whole is at the heart of MIPRC’s purpose. Since its inception, the Commission has advocated for the federal funding necessary to see state and regional plans realized. We also strongly support Amtrak’s National Network; both long-distance and state-supported services.
