Give The Money To Cali

I'm quite happy to fund the SUPERSUPERTRAIN project. It is, as far as I know (correct me if I'm wrong), the one on the shelf voter approved true HSR project. In much of the rest of the country there are money-to-upgrade-existing-corridors projects so that trains can reliably go 100MPH. And frankly, that's actually fine. If you can get average speeds (not top) up close to 100MPH that's a pretty fast train. So fund the big project in Cali and fund the smaller projects elsewhere.
