High-speed rail hits sticking point in upstate N.Y.

Advocates for high-speed rail in upstate New York may want to cross Utica-area Rep. Richard L. Hanna off their list of potential allies on the House Transportation Committee.

Mr. Hanna, R-Barneveld, said recently that he doesn't see the economic benefit of super-fast trains in the region and does not envision them upstate in his lifetime, if ever. And there is little indication that other newly elected GOP House members along the potential rail corridor view the idea more favorably.

The full story appears on the Watertown Daily Times website.
