Passenger rail advocacy group elects leadership


States for Passenger Rail Coalition (SPRC), a national organization comprising 21 state departments of transportation and related agencies, and who’s primary object is to seek federal funding for high-speed and expanded passenger rail services, Jan. 16 elected new leadership.

David King, deputy secretary, North Carolina Department of Transportation, was elected chair; Ken Uznanski, manager, Washington State DOT Rail Office, vice-chair; and Randall Wade, passenger rail implementation manager, Wisconsin DOT, secretary/treasurer.

King replaces Terry Mulcahy, Wisconsin DOT secretary, who is retiring from public service at month’s end, capping 46 years with the state agency and two with SPRC.

Also at the Jan. 16 meeting, coalition members discussed federal passenger rail policy with U.S. DOT Deputy Secretary Michael Jackson and Federal Railroad Administrator Allan Rutter.
