Bad news is that Florida will get some of the money. That is bad because Florida has no history of transportation policy except highways.

    Not necessarilly. Tri-Rail has been a success, which sets a precedent for the state, though ridership is way down thanks to unemployment and low gas prices. Besides, if they’re going to do it, they’ve got to start some time, right?

  2. I agree, Florida should start sometime, why not now? After all, they’ve been studying HSR since the mid-1970s, from what I remember. They deserve it.
