Governor Newsom Responds to Federal Decision

Governor Newsom has issued the following statement on today's decision by the federal government to deobligate nearly $1 billion in funding for high-speed rail:

“The Trump Administration’s action is illegal and a direct assault on California, our green infrastructure, and the thousands of Central Valley workers who are building this project. Just as we have seen from the Trump Administration’s attacks on our clean air standards, our immigrant communities and in countless other areas, the Trump Administration is trying to exact political retribution on our state.This is California’s money, appropriated by Congress, and we will vigorously defend it in court.”
