Hosted by

In his State of the Union address last night, President Obama announced an $8 billion high-speed rail initiative, and California will get the largest piece, $2.25 billion. In Tampa, Florida today, he reiterated his intention, which could prove important for the future of transportation in California. "There's no reason why other countries can build high-speed rail lines and we can't."
