California Chamber Opposes High Speed Rail

California chamber of commerce

The California Chamber of Commerce announced yesterday that they oppose Prop 1a, the November ballot initiative that would authorize a $9.95 billion bond to partially fund the route between Southern to Northern California. A trip from Los Angeles to San Francisco would be under three hours.

"There are other projects that mitigate congestion that should be a high priority," chamber president Allan Zaremberg was quoted saying in the Sacramento Bee. Usually, the Chamber is consistent in endorsements with Governor Schwarzenegger, who supports the high speed rail bond.
