First Federal Funding of a Streetcar

The following message is from City of Portland Mayor Sam Adams:
Finally, Federal Funding Ok’d for Eastside Streetcar Line!

I want to share with you today great news for uniting Central Portland with a streetcar loop!

President Barack Obama signed today the 2009 Omnibus Appropriations bill that includes $45 million in appropriations for the Eastside Streetcar Loop. The money signals a first-ever federal investment in streetcars.
