This legislation creates a Gulf Coast Working Group led by the Federal Railroad Administration charged with studying the restoration of Gulf Coast rail service east of New Orleans. Its members would include members of the Southern Rail Commission, represen- tatives from Amtrak, the states and cities along the route, and railroad company officials. This service was suspended after Katrina although the tracks have been restored. "We are encouraged by this surge in support for passenger rail," said Knox Ross, Chairman of the Southern Rail Commission. "The Southern Rail Commission has never been more engaged with decision-makers and thought leaders in Washington and with local elected officials. That combination is yielding significant progress for passenger rail along the Gulf Coast." RREEA also authorizes $1.45 billion for fiscal year 2o16 and grows to $1.9 billion by fiscal year 2019 -- enough funding to start to return the system to a state of good repair and make other targeted investments designed to improve service. The bill also includes language that would: Sustainably grow funding authorization levels to Amtrak, which would enable the nation's passenger rail corporation to address the long ignored need to invest in passenger rail and its supporting infra- structur Create a Rail Service Capital and Operating grant program to assist regions with planning and deploying new or expanded passenger rail service Unlock billions in pri- vate capital to develop transit-oriented devel- opment that support passenger rail stations, service and increased ridership potential through the underuti- lized Railroad Rehabilitation and Improvement Financing (RRIF) program -- a $35 billion program that provides direct loans to finance development of public and private rail infrastructure Ensure the Amtrak Board of Directors is representative of the entire nation's interest by reserving seats for state-supported and long-distance corridors as well as the Northeast Corridor Southern Rail Commission has also commissioned Amtrak to study the options for the return of passenger along the Gulf Coast corridor between New Orleans and Orlando.
