    Article doesn't really say.

    Ideology is an excuse to ignore common sense.

      but it sounds promising the way the article describes it.

      "I applaud the Senate's leadership on this issue and I'm thankful that our governor has been making supportive signals on rail," Irwin said.

      ...

      The state Senate's approval of the spending plan was seen as one of the last major hurdles to upgrading the tracks between Detroit and Chicago to 110 mph — from 60 mph. That came on Thursday when the Senate voted 30-6 in favor of Senate Bill 237.

      "Only idiots believe the earth is getting warmer. Besides, they've proven it's only getting warmer because of sunspots."

      •  He was never against the train funds, as far as I (0+ / 0-)

        know. Back when Walker was turning down our (WI) train money, Snyder was very quiet. The people there are for the train, as far as I know. There has always been a big ridership from Detroit to Chicago, and even from Windsor to Toronto (in Ontario, Canada, but near Detroit). Their train money will upgrade that existing line, not build a new one in a different place, as far as I know.

        Plus, if a politician in Michigan turns down money that will bring in jobs, they would ALL recall him. The recession in Michigan, like Ohio, has been much longer and more severe than in other areas of the country, even than Wisconsin.
