Move to derail Fla. high speed rail project is still going strong

(The Associated Press circulated the following article on July 26.)

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- A move to repeal Florida's high speed rail project is still on track.

That's according to organizers of the repeal effort.

Citizen initiatives aiming to get on the November ballot are down to their last week to gather signatures.

The effort to kill high speed rail in Florida still needs about 100-thousand certified signatures to meet the minimum threshold.

As of today, it has 382-thousand certified signatures. The proposal needs 488-thousand by August third.

Tom Gallagher is leading the charge to derail the bullet train. He says supporters will meet the deadline.

Gallagher says the repeal forces have about 700-thousand signatures, so no problems are expected in having 488-thousand of those certified.
