Why Calif. High Speed Rail Hasn't Yet Used It's Voter-Approved Bond Funds


Eight years after California voters approved bonds for a high speed rail train, the project is seeking to tap those funds.  The High Speed Rail Authority authorized the first use of Proposition 1-A bonds yesterday (Tuesday).  As Capital Public Radio's Ben Bradford reports, the money comes with lots of strings and has prompted a new lawsuit.
