Budget Issue: Funding for high-speed rail
Program: High-Speed Rail Authority
Finding or Recommendation: Reject Governor's funding request for $5.9 billion for construction in the Central Valley. Continue some minimal funding to preserve future options. Alternatively, should the Legislature choose to move forward, we recommend a series of steps to increase the chance that the project is successfully completed. Approve $812 million request for investments in existing rail services.
