The article reports that the U.S. Federal Transit Administration placed rail lines in Denver, Colorado, Dallas, Texas, and Salt Lake City, Utah on its list of projects recommended for federal funding, while a proposed project in Houston, Texas was labeled not ready for funding. The thumbs-up for federal funding of the Denver-based Regional Transportation District's project gives that agency the green light to plan the issuance of part of the debt associated with a $4.7 billion transit revenue bond package voters approved in November, 2004.
