Mayor Swearengin: Approval of High-Speed Rail Legislation Is ‘Historic Day for Fresno’
– Mayor Ashley Swearengin today issued the following statement after the California Senate passed legislation authorizing funding for the state's high-speed rail project:
“This is an historic day for Fresno. A lack of transportation infrastructure has always been one of Fresno's greatest challenges to overcoming our biggest gaps, and high-speed rail closes that gap.
“With high-speed rail, the rest of California can easily access Fresno, and Fresno can easily access the other major urban areas of the state. This is great news for our economy, both in the immediate term and in the long run.”
