Peer Review Group on High Speed Rail recommends the funding plan not be approved

Original post made by Morris Brown, Menlo Park, on Jan 3, 2012

The Peer Review Group has just issued its report on the funding plan for the High Speed Rail project.

They recommend that the funding plan as proposed not be approved.

The Group has serious reservations in many areas. Prop 1A mandated that the Group be formed with the responsibility of evaluating the HSR project, and delivering their evaluation to the State Legislature.

The report can be viewed at:

It was obvious that CA HSR was a scam and ponzi scheme from the beginning.

The question now is--when will its sponsors, politicians and others, be prosecuted for fraud and conflicts of interests as they should be?

CA taxpayers will demand prosecutions.

California should change its goal from LA-SF to LA-SACRAMENTO with a branch line someday to SF. Frisco is yesterday.
