Assemblymember Waldron -Avoiding a Financial Train Wreck

Marie Waldron, State Assemblymember –The term High-speed rail or Bullet Train have become increasingly controversial over the last two decades. With endless delays and skyrocketing cost projections of $100 billion that would make the Bullet Train the third most costly construction project in the history of the world, many Californians have grown skeptical of the project’s promise.

But where do we go from here? There is a way out of this wasteful project. The federal government requires California’s High-Speed Rail Authority to have a contingency plan to salvage funds spent on the initial project if it faces “significant delay.” Considering that the Bullet Train is now running 13 years behind schedule, we have significant delays.

A back up plan was submitted to the federal government stating that once the construction on the first segment of the track in the Central Valley is complete, it will be transfer to Amtrak, to be used for an existing service line to improve travel times.

As your State Representative, improving the financial responsibility of our state is one of my top priorities! Pursuing this backup plan is a big step towards reducing waste and saving taxpayer money. Read my full Op-Ed on the High-Speed Rail here.
