ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a transportation bill signed by U.S. President George W. Bush that allocates $45 million for a magnetic levitation (maglev) super speed train connecting Las Vegas, Nevada to Anaheim, California. Maglev trains have the capability to travel up to 300 miles per hour (mph) and climb 10% grades since there is no friction. The budget will be used to underwrite environmental studies for the first 42-mile segment from Primm to Las Vegas.
