New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Thursday that Amtrak should pay for changes the state must make to accommodate repairs this summer at Pennsylvania Station, the country's busiest train hub. Amtrak's push to repair its Penn Station infrastructure from July 10 through Sept. 1 will take three key tracks out of service and disrupt commutes across the region, in particular from New Jersey and the city's Long Island suburbs. In a separate statement, Cuomo also urged the state's Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), which runs the LIRR and New York City's subway system, to stop making rental payments to Amtrak for Penn Station. After a NJ Transit train derailment in April - one of several this year that prompted Amtrak's expedited repair program - New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said he ordered the state to halt payments to Amtrak. State officials there also say they may also seek reimbursement from Amtrak, including through possible legal action.
