(This amendment allows up to $600,000 in the first year of rail development program funding to be used for a study of shifting truck-borne freight to rail in accordance with SJR 55. Because the Eastern Shore Railroad debt service payment will be paid from general funds, rail assistance funds are available for the study.)
