CHSRA Chair Dan Richard Provides Video Update on Project
With legislative leaders and Governor Jerry Brown announcing a budget deal, attention in Sacramento will shift to the high speed rail project. It’s timely then that California High Speed Rail Authority chair Dan Richard provided this project update today via YouTube:
It doesn’t break any major news, but it’s still a good encapsulation of where the project currently stands, what’s ahead, and why this project needs to move forward.
A few anti-rail State Senators will try and spend the next week and a half killing the project, even though Joe Simitian and Alan Lowenthal have less than six months left in the legislature. California could give in to their short-term, short-sighted anti-rail agenda, or we can rebuild our economy, provide cheaper and sustainable transportation, and address global warming by building the high speed rail project that voters approved nearly four years ago.
