High-Speed Rail: Full Speed Ahead?

at 9:00 AM
 (California High-Speed Rail Authority)

California lawmakers gave the green light to start building the nation's first dedicated high-speed rail line, a $68 billion project that will eventually link San Francisco and Los Angeles. The state is now authorized to sell a portion of a $10 billion bond that voters approved in 2008. But that only covers a fraction of the cost. Where will the rest of the funding come from, and what other hurdles remain?

Guests:

Michael Cabanatuan, transportation writer for The San Francisco Chronicle

Joe Simitian, California state senator (D-Palo Alto)

Elizabeth Alexis, co-founder of Californians Advocating Responsible Rail Design

Jerry Hill, California state assemblymember (D-19th District)
