California Abandons High-Speed Rail Project, Same Kind Proposed by The Green New Deal

California Governor Gavin Newson has abandoned a project to build a high-speed rail line running from LA to San Francisco since, he says, “The project, as currently planned, would cost too much and take too long.”

An article in City Journal puts it, “Perhaps the most critical national casualty may be the Green New Deal proposed by New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Much of her platform for a ten-year transformation of the American economy centers on transportation.”

“In Washington, Ocasio-Cortez and others will continue to push their fantastical Green New Deal, at least until the Senate votes on it. With the utterly predictable demise of California’s high-speed rail project,” the article concludes.

The Conservative Caucus, a project of Americans for Constitutional Liberty, is a public policy organization, contributions to which are not tax deductible.
