WASHINGTON, DC--Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (CT-3) released the following statement today on the Connecticut train collision:
"I have spoken with Transportation Secretary LaHood, Governor Malloy, Mayor Finch and other officials throughout the weekend. We must work swiftly to ensure appropriate resources get to Connecticut so we can determine the cause and get train service running again. No one should have to worry their commute is going to send them to the hospital. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected and many thanks go out to the brave first responders who are at their best when we need them the most."
