CA: Bullet Train Boondoggle
7-30-18, NYTimes -- California High Speed 'Bullet Train' project has been plagued by escalating costs and delays. Most Californians are against it. And a central question — how is it going to be paid for — remains unresolved. New Governor, Gavin Newsom has flip flopped on his approval and disapproval of former Gov Jerry Brown's project. The $100 billion Los Angeles-to-San Francisco bullet train has moved off the drawing board and onto 21 construction sites spread across five Central California counties. Work began in July 2018 on one of the more ambitious pieces of the project — an overpass that will carry trains over a major highway in Fresno. Nearly 2,000 workers are on the job, starting as early as 5 a.m. to avoid the 110-degree afternoon heat.
Gov. Rick Scott of Florida rejected Obama's federal funds to help build a high speed rail line from Tampa to Orlando, saying it was too expensive for taxpayers. However, a high-speed rail line is moving ahead in Texas, connecting Dallas, Fort Worth and Houston, but it is being financed by private industry.

Obama began the dream in 2009 and seven years later only California was left with plans as Ohio, Wisconsin & Florida refused the Federal grants as it would be too expensive for taxpayers to carry the brunt of the bill.
