    The state government can't have voters approve a project for $60B and then two years later say, oops its actually $120B. That has nothing to do with Grover, it has to do with having a responsible professional government that is truthful with its citizens when it puts things to a vote.

    The distance between Northern California and Southern California population centers is too great, with too few people in between to justify high speed rail between the two when air travel is cheaper and quicker. What makes the most sense is two high speed rail projects: One That connects the Southern California Counties (Riverside, San Bernardino, LA, Orange, San Diego) and another that connects the Northen California Area (SF, Oakland, San Jose, Sacremento etc)

    Those would get heavy usage.
