California would welcome high-speed rail funds from Florida

(The following appeared on the San Jose Mercury News website on February 16, 2011.)

SAN JOSE, Calif. — California is now the nation's only state close to building a high-speed railway after Florida killed its project Wednesday, casting further doubt on whether there is enough national support to fund the Golden State's train line.

In the short term, Republican Gov. Rick Scott's decision to quash construction of Florida's costly high-speed train between Tampa and Orlando could inject up to $2 billion into California's forthcoming $43 billion bullet-train line. Gov. Jerry Brown announced Wednesday that he'd welcome the money and reiterated his support for the project.
