Gov. Newsom ending high-speed rail project between SF, LA California Gov. Newsom ending high-speed rail plan between SF, LA | abc7news.com California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Tuesday he's abandoning a plan to build a high-speed rail line between Los Angeles and San Francisco, a project with an estimated cost that has ballooned to $77 billion. "Let's be real," Newsom said in his first State of the State address. "The current project, as planned, would cost too much and respectfully take too long. There's been too little oversight and not enough transparency." The idea long championed by Newsom's predecessor, Jerry Brown, is years behind schedule. The latest estimate for completion is 2033. But Newsom's speech went beyond immigration and other disagreements with the White House to his own ambitious policy goals for the state. Newsom has laid out his vision for California twice already, in his inaugural address and through his first crack at the state budget. He spent his first month in office traveling to different parts of the state promoting his ideas on housing, juvenile justice and the environment. ~~~~~~ Like the "Big Dig" This was a graft-filled boondoggle from How many billions have already been spent on this boondoggle? How many billions have already been stolen? Perhaps they got their fill, now they want to shut it down before there’s an audit.the beginning. Originally supposed to be $10 Billion over 10 years, with gizmos and door-to-door service. Yet another in the long list of Democrat politically-correct Boondoggles. Whoops, what does he expect people to use - cars, airplanes? Better check with AOC first! You've got to wonder how many billions they flushed down that rat-hole. So Newsome wasn’t included in the graft kickback scheme for this project. “Let’s be real,” Newsom said in his first State of the State address. “The current project, as planned, would cost too much and respectfully take too long. There’s been too little oversight and not enough transparency.” Who would have thought a radical left winger from SF would be the one to exercise the sense to end this folly. Newsome is still a vapid deranged out of touch with reality fool but even the worst among us occasionally experiences periods of lucidity. I'm sure that Gavin's aunt Nancy will help him as much as she can while enjoying the profits of the kickbacks..
