The high speed rail project has devolved into the most horrible example of bait-and-switch I've ever seen. The Legislative Analysts Office, the State Auditor and UC Berkeley's ITS have all raised legitimate concerns that CHSRA has not answered. Shame on Governor Moonbeam for ramming this through on short notice during a holiday week. If it passes, I'll definitely vote "no" on Jerry's tax increase.

Steve, I'm with you. I'm against this HSR project too. This just goes to show how a lot of politicians really are: out for themselves and the special interest groups that put them there. Yea for MV and PA for trying to fight this bad idea!

Sorry.. I didn't vote for it the first time I had the chance.
But since the price tag has more than doubled on what we, the people, voted for.. we should be allowed to vote on it again.
The voters approved a $30 billion dollar plan. Not $68 billion.
Stick to the plan or put it up for anoter vote.
