OLYMPIA, Wash. —

Washington's Department of Transportation has applied for more than $1.3 billion in federal stimulus money for high-speed passenger rail grants.

The state hopes to get money for 26 projects in the second round of funding for passenger rail. However, it has to compete with other states hoping for a share of the $8 billion available under the program.

Washington state wants to get federal dollars to add at least one more Amtrak Cascades round trip between Portland and Seattle, and to make other passenger rail improvements.
