Two weeks after the Metropolitan Transportation Authority Capital Program Review Board rejected the agency’s five-year budget proposal, three Queens elected officials are pressing for one of the program’s smaller items to make it into the final draft of the financial plan.

In a letter dated Tuesday, Reps. Grace Meng (D-Flushing) and Joe Crowley (D-Bronx, Queens) and City Councilman Danny Dromm (D-Jackson Heights) urged New York State Department of Transportation Commissioner and MTA Capital Program Review Board Chairwoman Joan McDonald to approve a $40 million proposal to reopen a Long Island Rail Road stop in Elmhurst.
