Yes this sounds like exactly the case. The only hope now to stop 3x daily before the election is the negotiations that have resumed between the Speaker and Treasury Secretary on COVID relief. The bill the house proposed yesterday does still include Amtrak funding and requirements that daily LD be maintained and avoiding furloughs. Not sure what will happen with all the furloughs if something eventually passes as some job abolishments have now taken place.In effect the can has been kicked down the road to after the election. In all likelihood there will be another CR at that point to cover the period between Dec 11 to whenever the new Congress picks things up.
