Minnesota may suffer if Wisconsin nixes high-speed rail
MADISON — A nine-state effort to create a network of fast, frequent trains could be derailed by Wisconsin Gov.-elect Scott Walker's vow to reject federal stimulus money to build a high-speed rail line between Milwaukee and Madison.
And here's a question.
No federally funded transportation project can proceed without extensive environmental studies, and no such studies have been done on any route except the Milwaukee-to-Madison segment, said Cari Anne Renlund, executive assistant to Wisconsin Transportation Secretary Frank Busalacchi, who was appointed by Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle, a major supporter of the high-speed rail project.
What study was done for the Milwaukee to Madison train? I thought they just rammed it through with no impact study!
We don't want it!
You want it that bad, go through Iowa!
