|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.|
