Florida Supreme Court hearing high speed rail dispute

(The Associated Press circulated the following on March 2, 2011.)

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. The Florida Supreme Court is hearing oral argument in a lawsuit challenging Gov. Rick Scott's refusal to accept $2.4 billion in federal money for the proposed Tampa-Orlando high speed rail line.

The justices are holding the expedited hearing Thursday, just a day before the deadline for accepting the stimulus money.

It'll be sent to high speed projects in other states if Florida doesn't take it.

The full story appears on the Miami Herald website.
