More Dollars for High Speed Rail?

Ian Scott on Tuesday, February 24, 2009 at 6:51:00 pm

Rail Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood has underscored the Obama administration's commitment to high speed rail.  The National Journal quoted Sec. LaHood as saying:

"What the president is saying with the $8 billion (in stimulus funding for high speed rail) is this is the start to help begin high-speed rail projects." He added that the administration "is committed to finding the dollars to not only get them started but to finishing them in at least five parts of the country."

This latest statement is further evidence of the 'pro-rail' mood in Washington and suggests funding priorities down the road (or rather, down the rail).
