BOSTON (AP) - Congressman Stephen Lynch will hold a summit with government, law enforcement and transportation officials to discuss ways to enhance and expand the security of the regional rail system.

Republican Gov. Charlie Baker and Boston Mayor Martin Walsh, a Democrat, are expected to join Lynch at the summit.

Lynch is the lead Democrat on the National Security Subcommittee. He has repeatedly raised concerns about the decline in federal funding for rail security and the need to assess any potential vulnerability in the passenger rail system.

The summit will be held Monday in the Federal Reserve Building in Boston.
