California OKs funding for nation’s first high-speed rail line

AP: “California lawmakers approved billions of dollars Friday in construction financing for the initial segment of what would be the nation’s first dedicated high-speed rail line, eventually connecting Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The bill authorizes the state to begin selling $2.6 billion in voter-approved bonds to build an initial 130-mile stretch in the Central Valley.”
