“In 2000, voters overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment requiring the Legislature to begin developing a rail network to serve some of the state's largest metropolitan areas.” Despite the recent repeal of the amendment after little action was taken to enact it, “rail proponents assembled a public-private partnership that includes Virgin Rail, a British conglomerate that operates air, rail and entertainment companies...Rail must be part of the state's transportation options, and building a high-speed network is not going to be any cheaper or easier several decades from now.”
