Stanford experts remain wary of the latest revision of the California High-Speed Rail project’s business plan and disagree over California State Legislative Analyst (LAO) Mac Taylor’s recommendations to withhold state funding to the project.
Concerns about the feasibility of funding California’s high-speed rail (HSR) project led a peer review group to conclude last Tuesday that the state legislature should not approve the release of billions of dollars of state bond money to fund the first phase of construction.
The California high-speed rail project has been a hotly contested issue at the state level since voters passed the nearly $10 billion California Proposition 1A in 2008. As the California High Speed Rail Authority (CHSRA) moves closer to beginning construction on the project, members of the Stanford community, students and experts alike, are weighing in on the prospects and perils the high-speed rail could face.
