The feds are pulling nearly $1 billion in federal funding for California’s high-speed rail project.
The Federal Railroad Administration says, the state failed to comply with the terms of its grant and has abandoned the original vision for a train between Los Angeles and San Francisco.
The money is critical to the project and could kill it.
In Hawaii, Mayor Caldwell assured that the same will not happen to Honolulu’s Rail Project.
“The difference here unlike the California high speed train, is that we are committed to go all the way and honor those agreements that we signed with the fed government,” said Mayor Kirk Caldwell.
The feds are also trying to force California to return another $2.5 billion.
