GLIN==> The Environment Report for 03.05.09



Today on The Environment Report...  

Stimulus money for high speed rail 
projects will mean faster Amtrak 
trains, right?  Well, not so fast.  
We talk with a spokesman for Amtrak 
who weaves us through their byzantine 
budgeting process.  

And... freight rail carriers are forced 
to ship certain toxic chemicals that 
kill people if they're spilled.  That 
means they have to pay high insurance 
costs.  Shawn Allee reports... now, rail 
carriers are asking some chemical companies 
to share the burden.
