Anybody know if this is still going through Coe? If so, should we all vote no!

Report: ‘Bullet’ train route approved
Silicon Valley / San Jose Business Journal

The California High Speed Rail Authority has approved the main route for a “bullet” train that would link San Francisco to San Jose and then proceed into the Central Valley, according to reports Thursday.

In November voters will decide whether to support a $9.95 billion bond measure to fund the $40 billion project.

Reuters said San Francisco and Anaheim will mark the northern and southern borders of the route.

In addition to a bond measure, other funds such as public-private partnerships and government money would be needed to build the system.
