Stimulus dollars could help fund something that's been talked about for decades here in Louisiana.
A rail system between Baton Rouge and New Orleans would fall into a federally designated rail corridor that could be built with stimulus money.
Nationally, $8 billion is up for grabs, but the competition is stiff.
Louisiana has a few things working in its favor, since the tracks for a rail line are already in place. They just need some upgrades.
