My bill to defund Gov. Brown’s “bullet train” was immediately killed by the Assembly Transportation Committee on a party line vote.

AB 842 would have prohibited federal and state funds from being used to finance the high-speed rail project on the basis that California’s crumbling infrastructure should be funded first.

My response: “When our roads are in disrepair, it saddens me to see that my colleagues in the Assembly were more compelled to support this High Speed Boondoggle once again, instead of having the chance to rebuild our current highways to the standards they were once famous for.”
