    Governor/Idiot Walker wants to give back $800 Million in Rail money to connect Madison & Milwaukee (The fool is crying in public because he thought he could take the money and spend it on highways instead.), other states will have a chance to grab some of it. (OH is also giving back a major chunk of change, $400 mil., because of ANOTHER fool for a governor.)
        IL's sec. of Transportation has ALREADY made noises he would LOVE to accept that cash for IL. Two major projects would be to upgrade the CHI-STL run in terms of both speed (79 for sure and heading for 110) and more frequent trains. The other would be to restart and upgrade service from the Quad Cities to Chicago for when Iowa comes to its senses and combines with Minnesota to outflank Wisconsin and connect CHI to Minneapolis-St. Paul Via DES MOINES (and likely include Rochester MN, who would love a rail link to the Twin Cities.)
