KAAL-TV reports the Albert Lea City Council [is] in Favor of Rail Line. There's video at the link. The story:
Albert Lea city officials have cast their votes in favor of a rail line to Minneapolis.
The council unanimously agreed they want a high-speed rail line between their city and Minneapolis.
Earlier this month, Freeborn County commissioners also voted unanimously in favor of the rail.
It’s the first county along Interstate 35 to give the go-ahead to the idea.
They hope more counties will follow suit.
Freeborn County leaders already met with congressmen Tim Walz and Jim Oberstar about the plan.
Oberstar is the chair of the House Transportation Committee.
