Presenters: Peter LeCody and Karl Ziebarth, Texas Rail Advocates

Join Texas Rail Advocates President Peter LeCody and Board Member Karl Ziebarth for a discussion on new and expanded federal rail funding available for both freight and passenger rail projects. 

 The Bi-Partisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act passed by Congress in 2021 opens up a minimum of $36 billion in investment for moving people and goods.

 Do you have rail-served industries that are looking to expand? Are you trying to attract new rail-served business to your area? Are you on a designated passenger rail corridor and want to see transportation choices improved?

 The panel will explain how Texas can share in this once-in-a-generation opportunity with a little nudge from our state legislators in the upcoming session.

 Mr. LeCody, a Dallas business owner, has been involved with TxDOT rail transportation committees for over a decade and Mr. Ziebath, a former railroad executive and rail consultant will explain how an unused state fund can open up opportunities for this important transportation mode. You will hear how Texas can share in this once-in-a-generation funding opportunity with a little nudge from our state legislators in the upcoming session.
