Federal transportation officials have extended the deadline that the California High-Speed Rail Authority has to start spending more state money on the project.
The two biggest players in the nation's pursuit of high-speed rail said Thursday they will work together to search for trains that will operate at up to 220 miles per hour along both U.S. coasts.
California High-Speed Rail Authority chief Jeff Morales wrote in a Feb. 20 letter to the Federal Railroad Administration that, among other things, delays in the start of construction and acquisition of property in the Central Valley made the new funding plan necessary.
After an unfavorable ruling in November, for example, rail authority Chief Executive Jeff Morales said addressing the concerns would not take long and that he did not think it would "have any material effect on the project."
