The U.S. Senate appropriations committee is supporting a bill allocating $250 million for a rail line in Honolulu. 

Sen. Daniel Inouye’s office says the committee voted 28 to 1 in favor of the bill on Thursday. 

The Hawaii Democrat, who is the chairman of the appropriations committee, is among those voting for the bill. 

The full Senate will vote on the measure before it goes to the House of Representatives.

The city broke ground on the 20-mile elevated track last year. The line will include 21 stations from East Kapolei to Ala Moana Center.
