Southwest Chief Could Get Derailed By New Mexico Governor
02/03/2014

A proposal to bring Amtrak's Southwest Chief train through New Mexico and two other states could get stopped in its tracks by Gov. Susana Martinez.
 
     The proponents fear the plan to run Southwest Chief on tracks owned by Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway will hinge on the Republican governor's support.
 
     Martinez has said in recent months that Amtrak is funded by Congress and any agreement should not leave New Mexico taxpayers with a large bill.
 
     Under the plan, New Mexico, Colorado, Kansas and would split track maintenance costs and ensure the train route remain active beyond 2015.
 
     A bill introduced by State Rep. Roberto "Bobby" Gonzales that would call for New Mexico to contribute funding is scheduled for a hearing Tuesday before a House committee.
