Schumer Calls For 'No-Ride' List For Amtrak Trains
Advertisements [?]
Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) called on Sunday for a "no-ride" list for Amtrak trains, as a way of preventing potential terrorists from riding the rails.

"Circumstances demand we make adjustments by increasing funding to enhance rail safety and monitoring on commuter rail transit and screening who gets on Amtrak passenger trains, so that we can provide a greater level of security to the public," Schumer told reporters at a news conference

Material seized at Osama bin Laden's compound by U.S. forces last week apparently showed that Al Qaeda had considered trains as a potential target for a terrorist attack in the U.S.
