ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) --

Plans for a commuter rail in metro Orlando are back on track after transportation officials reached an agreement with Amtrak.

Republican Congressman John Mica said that the agreement was
reached Wednesday (Dec. 8) at meeting between Amtrak leaders and federal, state and local officials.

The agreement allows the SunRail project to close on track
property that had been held up during the dispute.

No details on the deal were immediately released but the dispute
had centered on whether Amtrak would be shielded from potential
lawsuits and claims if one of its trains collides with a SunRail
train.

The commuter rail is set to debut in 2013.
