Mayors Reed, Swearengin, and Villaraigosa: We Welcome Additional High-Speed Rail Funding

San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed, Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa today issued the following statement related to federal funding for California’s high-speed rail project:

“As Mayors representing three regions soon to be linked by a true high-speed rail corridor, we support the build-out of the California high-speed rail system. While some states find themselves in a position to decline federal funding for this, we welcome additional funding to build our high-speed rail system, create more jobs, and connect the various regions of our beautiful state.”
