Environmental Organization Joins Opposition to Private Rail, Toll Road Proposal in Illinois

Chicago Tribune reports that the Environmental Law and Policy Center has filed to become a party of record in the federal government’s review of the Great Lakes Basin Transportation (GLBT) application to construct a private freight rail line and toll road. The newspaper notes, “The center challenged the proposed Illiana toll road in court on behalf of three area environmental groups,” and it asserts that it has members whose interests could be “harmed” if the GLBT application is approved.
