Budget Issue: High-speed rail safety standards
Program: California Public Utilities Commission
Finding or Recommendation: Reject Governor's January budget proposal to provide $300,000 (Public Transportation Account) for three permanent positions to develop new safety standards for high-speed rail. The requested funding is premature as there is no plan to operate a high-speed train service in California before 2021.
