A draft plan issued Tuesday by the California High Speed Rail Authority puts the cost of the San Francisco-to-Los Angeles bullet train at $105 billion, about $5 billion more than previous estimates.

We'll talk to rail authority CEO Brian Kelly about what's next for California's massive rail project.
