The California Highspeed Rail Blog recently reported that:
That blog post details how Florida is in the lead to receive the most HSR stimulus funds.
The article can be viewed here, Florida Likely to Win High Speed Rail Grant

California can keep it’s fingers crossed and hope that it will get a large chunk of that $8 billion for its projects.
