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.
