SACRAMENTO-The California High-Speed Rail Authority was awarded $715 million from the federal government, bringing to $4.3 billion the funding secured to begin construction on the core of the system in 2012. The project is expected to put thousands of Californians to work.  

According to California High-Speed Rail Authority chairman, Curt Pringle, “Federal funding has once again invigorated the project and will be a huge boost to the state’s economy. He adds that “The key to developing this system is to create a core—a backbone for the system that will connect our major metropolitan cities.
