Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand says that the Federal Railroad Administration's criticism of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority is not enough.

New York's junior senator is calling on the feds to do a top-to-bottom look at the transit agency in light of a series of incidents this year.

"We have a lot of issues that we have, both rail issues, maintenance issues, training issues," Gillibrand said. "We need better technology. We need the funding to fund better technology."

A federal law requires the MTA and rail systems across the country to install technology aimed at preventing derailments, but those transit agencies argue that the federal government hasn't allocated enough money for it.
