23 Nov We Might Get to Vote on HSR Again!
The only people who ever have anything good to say about high-speed rail work for high-speed rail. Almost every promise made by enthusiasts have been broken. We don’t think we need to go down the list again.
A 2016 ballot measure would “redirect the remaining $8 billion in high-speed rail bond funds toward building new surface and groundwater storage.” They still need to get the signatures, but judging how most Californians feel about the bullet train, it doesn’t appear to be a problem.
At Families Protecting the Valley we have been advocates for solving water problems over this high-speed rail plan for years. Until the state gets its water infrastructure and water policies in order, high-speed rail should not be a higher priority.
All train money, now at $68B would solve a lot of water problems.
California’s priority should be water, not high-speed rail
