New funds will double length of California high-speed rail line

An extra $616 million in federal funds from Ohio and Wisconsin will be used to extend the initial construction of California's high-speed rail line, creating a 120-mile segment that will link two of the Central Valley's largest cities, Fresno and Bakersfield. Critics had derided the initially approved 65-mile stretch as going "nowhere to nowhere."
