ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A federal funding agreement for a 16-mile light rail project in the traffic-choked suburbs of the nation's capital is expected to be signed "in the very near future," a spokesman for Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said Monday.

The agreement would free up $325 million in federal funds already appropriated and a total of $900 million over the life of the funding arrangement, said Doug Mayer, the governor's spokesman. Hogan spoke with Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao on Monday and Friday in what Mayer described as "very productive, high-level conversations."
