Major Victory! High Speed Rail Project Locked In as Cap and Trade Provides Ongoing Funding Source
Californians For High Speed Rail applauds Governor Jerry Brown and the California Legislature for voting to provide ongoing funding for California’s high speed rail project by dedicating 25% of all future Cap and Trade revenues to the project (including $250 million in this year’s budget). This is truly a game changer. Stayed to as this funding source will likely lead to new bond measures that can jump start a massive construction boom. Click here for more information.
Top Policy Priorities
- Explore, propose, and support strategies to accelerate construction of the Bakersfield-Palmdale Section.
- Build support for HSR in Bakersfield (and Kern County).
- Monitor implementation of early investments in the bookends to ensure they are consistent with the statewide HSR program (esp. Caltrain Electrification).
- Explore, propose, and support strategies to accelerate construction of the tunnel to the new Transbay Transit Center
- Monitor the planning process for the redesign of Los Angeles Union Station to ensure it will accommodate HSR efficiently.
Top Education/Outreach Priorities
- Continue to educate the public about the benefits of HSR and debunk opponent lies and distortions.
- Expand stakeholder outreach efforts.
- Organize several educational forums on key topics regarding California’s HSR project.
- Increase the frequency of e-mail communications, including the restructuring of The High-Speed Rail Advocate e-newsletter so it is shorter and more frequent.
- Initiate a quarterly print newsletter (funding permitting).
