High Speed Rail for Wisconsin, Like it or Not

Despite what either of the state's two Republican gubernatorial candidates want, high speed rail is on its way to Wisconsin, according to DOT Secretary Ray LaHood.

The Democratic candidate is behind the plan, but both Republicans have indicated opposition.

"LaHood spoke with Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle today in Watertown, where they signed a grant agreement to implement $46.5 million of American Recovery and Reinvestment Acts funds to begin the infrastructure for a high-speed rail system in the Midwest.

The grant will fund work for high-speed rail stations in Watertown and Madison and will enable Wisconsin to begin the projected 25-year journey to join the national high-speed rail infrastructure initiated under the Obama administration."
