The Commission is charged with developing the Southeast Regional Rail Plan, reporting on the economic benefits of rail along the corridor, creating an implementation plan, and prioritizing major projects. The goal of this effort is to improve the mutual cooperation and planning between states and stakeholders to position the corridor to receive direct federal funding. The SEC extends from Washington, D.C., through Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, to Florida.
