If passed, President Donald Trump’s proposed budget would cut Ohio‘s Amtrak passenger train service.

The Republican’s budget calls for the elimination of federal subsidies for long distance train routes.

All seven of the Amtrak stations in the state would lose their trains and end intercity train service.

The Trump administration said the cuts will help the company run shorter lines more efficiently.

Similar proposals have been pushed by other administrations.
