US High Speed Rail Association conference in Orlando

(The following appeared at MyFoxOrlando.com on March 4, 2010.)

ORLANDO, Fla. Leaders from the US High Speed Rail Association (US HSR), legislators, and other business and civic leaders will gather to discuss the future of the nation's high speed rail system this week, March 4-5, in Orlando.

US HSR - the only non-profit organization in America focusing entirely on advancing a state-of-the-art national high speed rail network - is hosting High Speed Rail 2010 to give state business leaders a first-look at the Florida Department of Transportations plans for a high speed rail system and the procurement process.

This conference comes at the heels of an announcement made by President Obama in January that Florida will receive a $1.25 billion federal grant to build a high-speed rail line between Tampa and Orlando.
