Court Denies Injunction to Stop High Speed Rail Work

An injunction to halt California’s planned high-speed rail was denied Friday by the Sacramento County Superior Court.

“We welcome the Court’s ruling,” said Chair of the California High-Speed Rail Authority Board of Directors Dan Richard, in a statement emailed to the media. “Both the voters and the Legislature have spoken on High-Speed Rail. And since the Governor signed the bill modernizing the state’s transit system in July, we’ve made significant progress on many aspects of the program.”

The injunction was originally filed by groups in California’s central valley, including farmers and water districts.

    While I disagree with the starting point of the project I support the project. With California’s population increases in the next 2 decades we would be foolish to wait on this. It’ll be far more expensive later and too little too late.
