U.S. Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Dan Sullivan (R-AK) joined U.S. Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska) in welcoming a cross-border permit that would be the latest step in an Alaska-Canada Railway.
Following President Donald Trump’s cross-border permit for the Alaska-Alberta (A2A) Railway Development Corporation, the legislators issued a statement in support of the transportation project.
“The effort to establish a railway connecting Alaska and Canada has been underway for decades, but never this close to reality. My father advocated for a rail connection between Canada and Alaska throughout his years in public office, and I have likewise worked with my partners in the delegation to advance the concept since coming to the Senate.
