Currently, the Southwest Chief Commission advocates for improved service on Amtrak's Southwest Chief route through southeast Colorado. On February 23, the Colorado Senate passed a bill which would continue the Southwest Chief Commission's efforts to improve the Amtrak Southwest Chief line, expand its service to Pueblo, and investigate adding service to Walsenburg. Additionally, the new group would facilitate the development of Front Range Passenger Rail. The bill moves to the Colorado House of Representatives next.
