"In one of its last orders of business Wednesday, the Maryland General Assembly passed a bill to expand Maryland commuter train service past Union Station in the District and into Virginia.

MARC trains could be operating across the Potomac River within a few years if the measure is signed into law by Gov. Larry Hogan (R).

Del. Jared Solomon (D-Montgomery), the lead sponsor of the legislation, said the proposal will help connect Maryland and Virginia, and give Maryland commuters the option of a one-seat ride to jobs in Northern Virginia. The measure was approved in the last minutes of the legislative session that was cut short by the global coronavirus pandemic."
