By now, you have likely heard that the State Auditor has issued its latest report on the California High Speed Rail Authority.
The full report is available at: http://www.bsa.ca.gov/pdfs/reports/2011-504.pdf
We recommend reading the long version (always!) as it provides much greater insight into the problems resulting from too many consultants and not enough staff that CARRD has been highlighting for years.
Also, don’t miss the NY Times piece called Room for Debate.
The NY Times poses the question: Does California need a high speed rail line, ultimately connecting San Francisco to Los Angeles? Can the state afford it?
There are 6 different perspectives, including CARRD’s. Be sure to read them all!
