Press Conference about Rail Community Benefits Agreement

A press conference was held on Thursday, June 3, and our Rail Community Benefits Agreement (CBA) was announced. We emphasized the need for LOCAL JOBS from this rail project.

Mayor Mike Houston and Sangamon County Board Chair Andy VanMeter support our CBA, as does the Springfield Chamber of Commerce and local union leaders. Faith Coalition leaders will meet with US Department of Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood on Thursday, June 9.

We will keep you posted!
