The Republican’s budget calls for the elimination of federal subsidies for long-distance train routes.

All seven Amtrak stations in Ohio would lose their routes and end intercity train service.

The Trump administration said the cuts will help the company run shorter lines more efficiently.

Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown said the cuts would hurt residents throughout the state who rely on the service to travel for work or visit family.

Representatives from the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority said cuts would affect stations that depend on Amtrak as a source of revenue to maintain their facilities.

Similar proposals have been pushed by other administrations.

The proposed budget still has to be approved.
