City Loans Texas State Railroad Half Million Dollars

The City of Palestine is loaning $500,000 to the Texas State Railroad.

Palestine Mayor Carolyn Salter says if the railroad shuts down, it'll cost the city much more in the long run. The railroad is still waiting for $2 million in state money to be freed up.

The Rusk City Council could soon consider a similar move.
