epresentatives’ short term surface transportation funding authorization b=
ill (H.R. 3819) that includes a three year extension to the December=
31, 2015 deadline for implementation of Positive Train Control (PTC). Pr=

supportive of the PTC extension.

We are happy this has been addressed by Congress so we can continue pr=
oviding you service in 2016 and are continuing the hard work with our hos=

and reliably as possible.

Thanks for riding VRE.
