(The following appeared on the Boston Globe website on February 28, 2011.)

The Northeast lawmakers say in a letter sent Monday to U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood that the funds that are not being used by the state of Florida would be put to good use on rail projects between Boston and Washington, D.C.
