Today Congressman Devin Nunes testified before the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, which held an important oversight hearing on the skyrocketing cost of California high-speed rail.
"The House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure gave opponents of California high-speed rail a unique opportunity to tell members why they oppose this growingly unpopular project," said Congressman Nunes. "We need to look for better options to high- speed rail, such as freight rail and other transportation projects that are more beneficial to California and don't bankrupt our state. Chairman Mica should be praised for showing considerable leadership in holding this hearing."
"The Administration's so-called high-speed rail program continues to take us in the wrong direction, as the continued implosion of the California project continues to demonstrate. Congressman Nunes clearly highlighted Californians' growing frustration with this project today, and I appreciate his participation in this informative hearing," said Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman John L. Mica.
