    The federal government passed the High Speed Ground Transportation Act of to fund pilot programs in the Northeast Corridor, but this did nothing to address passenger deficits. In late multiple proposals emerged in the United States Congress, including equipment subsidies, route subsidies, and, lastly, a "quasi-public corporation" to Track gauge: 4 ft 8 ¹⁄₂ in (1, mm) standard gauge. A plan to meet the mobility needs of the Northeast through high-speed rail is presented by the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Design. Amtrak then releases the “Next Generation” report envisioning true high-speed rail on the Northeast Corridor. – Proposed Year of Operation of 'true' high speed rail in the Northeast Corridor.
