Submission + - Obama calling for 53B$ for High Speed Rail (

Antisyzygy writes: President Obama is calling for 53B dollars to be appropriated for the construction of high-speed rail in the United States over the next 6 years. Assuming Congress approves this plan, the funding would be spent on developing and/or improving trains that travel at approximately 250 miles/hour, as well as spent on connecting existing rail lines to new developed high speed lines.
