This is Excellent news! It's good to see the taxpayer requirements in Prop A being enforced. I'm sure the legislature and Brown will continue to work towards undermining California citizen's requirements, but this should be a big roadblock, preventing them from forcing a huge financial liability on us.
Mr. Brady and Mr. Flashman, THANK YOU! Keep up the good work.

Would all you HSR and Caltrain haters just be honest. It's not about the financial issues. You are using the funding issues as your vehicle to kill both trains. Every group of naysayers looks for the one thing that can be used in court to oppose a project. You people found your issue and you won this round. Bully for you, today but, tomorrow and years from now, California will have a high speed rail system between S.F. and L.A. which our children and grandchildren will use on a regular basis. Life goes on despite roadblocks thrown down by frightened people

it is no longer "high Speed Rail." It will not run at high speed between San Francisco and at least San Jose. No grade separations. HSR is a boondoggle of immense proportions meant only to reward organized labor who have financially supported all the democrats that keep pushing it. The citizens of California voted for one thing and HSR is trying to provide something that was NEVER approved. I hope it never gets built. I don't want my grandchildren and great grandchildren having to subsidize it their entire lives.
