South Shore Commuter Rail Expasion

I received in the mail this week a flier about expanding the South Shore Commuter Rail. It said it will be a "Major Boost to Northwest Indiana's economy."
It also said that 26,000 could be added to the area but also the rail expansion could provide "a real shot in the arm for our pocketbooks," it read.
The flier said expanded transit lines will be a magnet for new businesses and emerging industries, good-wage construction jobs on new lines and added staff for train and station operations could be added as well.
There are also claims that there will be more options for small businesses to grow around the transit stops and an increased access to 150,000 jobs in downtown Chicago.
The community should be involved in this decision.
