Florida HSR cancelled!??! (Maybe, not yet)


We received an email from a fan who lives in the Central Florida area and within the email he said that "if you were working for the media (radio, TV, print) this evening, you were talking about the cancelation of Florida HSR from  Governor Scott."

Well it seems like when the darkest cloud is overhead their might just be a silver lining out there after all.

Orlando Sentinel is reporting this evening the following link and two very interesting quotes...,0,1767319,print.story

U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood intends to meet either in person or by phone Friday with Florida elected officials, likely including Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and Reps. John Mica, R-Winter Park, and Corrine Brown, D-Jacksonville, to discuss ways of keeping the project alive even as California, New York and Washington state offered to take some of the money.

Nelson said he talked Wednesday with LaHood about pursuing a plan that would create another Florida entity that could serve as proxy to accept the federal money, rather than the state. This might involve a team of cities such as Orlando, Lakeland and Tampa, maybe even with private partners.

We wish good luck to the Florida HSR team... if there are any updates you can find them directly from the source..
