Today, U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) is releasing a statement regarding President Biden’s visit to Philadelphia:

“I welcome President Biden back to Pennsylvania to commemorate Amtrak’s 50th anniversary. President Biden understands better than anyone the vital role Amtrak has played in our Nation’s transportation infrastructure. I regret that a family obligation prevents me from being in Philadelphia today. As our Nation continues to work towards building back better by passing the American Jobs Plan, Amtrak is positioned to extend its lines and serve passengers throughout America, including with three potential new lines in Pennsylvania. I look forward to working with President Biden to pass the American Jobs Plan and ensure Amtrak has the funding it needs to continue and to expand service.”
