Will California build the approved Bullet Train? Or will California's economic woes and the ridiculous politics of Big Labor Unions and Environmentalists scuttle the bullet train?
Ambitious plans for a fast track linking Los Angeles and San Francisco at speeds of up to 220mph in just over two-and-a-half hours were slimly approved by 53 per cent in a statewide ballot in 2008. That allowed the state to raise $10 billion from bonds and secured an injection of $3.5 billion in stimulus money from the Obama administration. There is currently no direct train route between the two.
