I just read the San Francisco Chronicle that there is now another 53 billion for HSR. that should be enough to build it. Of course Palo Altans willsill have to contribute about 5k to 15k per property tax to get the beast underground just like Berkeley did. Or city will create a Bond for that? The thing is. it is coming, and nothing any one can do about it. The only argument is to choose where the HSP will pass by, Close to 101? is possible! close to 280 is possible. Just do not fight to kill it because it will jump up beat you. If you want to fight, fight to bring far way from Alma as possible and fight to get the BART too. Remember it is still about 15 year away, so if everyone want it to be Altmont pass everyone will win, and no more Pacheco pass baby. You will only spend energy to fight to kill it and you probably will did before it is passing by your house at 200 MPH.
