GLBT Draws Fire

Rockford Register Star reports on the GLBT’s US Surface Transportation Board application and notes ” the federal government has not considered approval of a railroad of this size and scope in more than a century.” It also notes that a Chicago lawyer representing project opponents has filed “a request with the transportation board asking to extend the public comment period beyond the June 5 deadline. The lawyer is also asking for more time to respond to Great Lakes’ proposal to keep its stockholders’ names confidential.”
