By revoking nearly $1 billion in federal funds allocated by Congress for California’s high-speed rail project, the Trump Administration is attempting to kill thousands of good, family-supporting jobs our state desperately needs. High-speed rail is a voter-approved job-creating engine that’s advancing our state’s clean energy goals.
Trump’s move to rip these funds away from California is a slap in the face to working people and our families who have fought for years to make this project a reality. We stand with Gov. Newsom in pledging to vigorously defend these funds and the high-speed rail project that’s so vital to California’s future.
