What were the comments submitted to the California High-Speed Rail Authority about its 2014 Draft Business Plan? Here’s what was submitted through April 10, 2014, when the board approved the draft (with some minor changes) to be sent to the California State Legislature. I classified the comments based on three perspectives: critical, concerned, and supportive.

  2. Tim Burch says:

    Please end the ill-conceived and unnecessary high speed rail project before it gobbles up resources better spent elsewhere. End the project now to release funds for needed water storage and water delivery projects. Use future funds to address traffic in the SF and LA areas and elsewhere. California is in the middle of a terrible drought with a statewide mandate to reduce and conserve. Aquifers are being depleted and even when rains return it will take years to before the water supply is back to normal. At the same time, California’s once excellent system of freeways is crumbling under inattention and growing populations. If there are any funds remaining, then address prison overcrowding to keep convicted offenders behind bars to serve their terms instead of administrative early releases. High speed rail does not address the priorities of California residents or business. It will end up costing far more than projected while serving far fewer than needed. End the fantasy and serve the real needs now.
