High Country News;3/19/2007, Vol. 39 Issue 5, p6
The article reports that Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has cut the High Speed Rail Authority's budget for 2007 in California. Schwarzenegger has recommended that only $1.2 million will be allocated for the agency for the fiscal year. The governor also suggests that a vote on the bond issue to fund the project's early phase be postponed indefinitely. He continues to express limited support for the project and does not believe high-speed rail would alleviate congestion in the short term and has said the state needs immediate financing for education programs, water and freeway infrastructure and the construction of prisons.
