California gets federal high-speed rail funds
We were just talking about this! It’s a good thing some states are starting to wise up about high speed rail. (Ahem, Florida— play sad trombone. They will catch up… one day.)
“California, Illinois and 13 other states, along with Amtrak, will share $2 billion in federal grants aimed at developing high-speed rail service, money that had been rejected by Florida, officials announced on Monday,” report Richard Simon and Michael Muskal. At least $300 million is slated for the San Francisco-Los Angeles link.
