Florida Foregoes HSR Funding, American High Speed Rail Alliance Responds

Posted by Steve Anderson on Thursday, February 17th, 2011

Excerpted from an American High Speed Rail Alliance press release:

Florida was on the right track to becoming one of the first high speed rail project in AmericaAHSRA had looked forward to Florida’s leadership in the 21st Century transportation infrastructure arenaThe rejection of the funding eliminates the opportunity Florida would have had as a leader in American high speed rail and the continued success in public private partnerships.”
Mary Ellen Curto, Executive Director, American High Speed Rail Alliance

The Alliance hopes the federal stimulus dollars will be re-directed to other states investing in high speed rail projects. High speed rail investments provide both short-term economic stimulus and long-term competitive advantages that can significantly increase connectivity and productivity, while mitigating the costs of congestion.
