Statement by Ken Kramer, Director, Lone Star Chapter of the Sierra Club on High Speed Rail announcement:
"The Sierra Club applauds the announcement
today by the Obama administration that funds are coming to
Texas to enhance rail service between Austin and Fort Worth.
We hope this action and the federal support for more extensive
high speed rail projects in other states sends a clear message
to TxDOT: It's time to move forward to make intercity rail
a significant part of our state transportation system."
