$151 million for upstate rail, out of $8 billion nationally, is not as bad as you say.

Upstate rail got about 2 percent of the overall rail pot, which is roughly equivalent to the 2 percent of House seats that are in parts of upstate that would benefit from improved rail infrastructure.

$151 million is the entire state's share of the Recovery Act (stimulus) high speed rail awards. An additional $83 million from the TIGER stimulus program was awarded to the Moynihan Station project in the city earlier this year.
