(Worthy News) - California sued the Trump administration Tuesday over its decision to pull nearly $ 1billion in federal funding for a high-speed rail project.
The lawsuit filed in federal court in San Francisco seeks to block the Federal Rail Administration from withdrawing $929 million in funding for a bullet train, originally planned to be built between San Francisco and Los Angeles.
In the suit, California claims the government's decision to pull the funds was arbitrary and capricious and will threaten to "wreak significant economic damage on the Central Valley and the state." [ Source: UPI (Read More...) ]
