Would it surprise you to learn a source close to Governor Tim Kaine has told WTOP that the governor knew the were storm clouds over the Dulles corridor rail project last summer? Perhaps the governor has been playing politics since the FTA voiced no confidence in the project recently. Shocking.
The Wash. Examiner says there is pessimism that the current project can be salvaged enough to get $900 million in federal funding.
The state needs to get its act together and push hard with the next administration for some federal funding. It seems pretty clear this isn’t going to happen until then.
