Amtrak Expected to Receive $1.4B in FY 2014

Amtrak is expected to receive about $1.4 billion for fiscal year 2014 under a two-year appropriations bill that was adopted by the House of Representatives last week.

The bill now goes to the Senate where passage is considered likely despite some vocal opposition by conservative Republicans and some Democrats.

Appropriations committees will soon decide how much Amtrak and other programs will get for the current fiscal year.

Amtrak’s appropriation is expected to be a slight increase over the $1.3 billion that is received in fiscal year 2013.
