The Senate adopted a resolution this week calling on the Kansas Department of Transportation to apply for federal stimulus funds to help develop a passenger rail route from Oklahoma City to Kansas City. It's awaiting action in the House.
Rep. Ed Trimmer, a Winfield Democrat, told The Arkansas City Traveler that the Kansas Department of Transportation should take advantage of a ``window of opportunity'' created by the stimulus funds to finance the new passenger service.
But an agency official said the federal government has not set application guidelines yet.
