DENVER — Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper signed a bill into law that requires the state to study expanding passenger rail service along the Front Range, the Denver Post reports.

The bill creates the Southwest Chief and Front Range Passenger Rail Commission, an 11-person panel that will include representatives from numerous communities up and down the Front Range and the region’s two Class I railroads: Union Pacific and BNSF Railway. The commission is expected to present a report to state officials before Dec. 1.

Groups such as ColoRail have long advocated for expanded passenger service in Colorado, arguing that it would benefit the region’s growing population.
