State Capital Bureau
Amtrak loses a chance to get to the money they need to continue its two-train service between St. Louis and Kansas City.
Paul Matadeen tells us about the narrow vote, and who it might affect.
By a single vote, Amtrak's request for almost 900-thosand dollars in state money died in House Committee.
Amtrak says it needs the money to contiune running two trains a day between St. Louis and Kanasas City.
But spokesperson Marc Magliari says he's not giving up.
[From October to January, over 40-thousand passangers traveled the route.]
State transportation officials say they only have enough money to run both trains until the end of the month.
From the state capitol, this is Paul Matadeen.
