State Senator Moorlach gets to say "I told you so!" over California's attempted end-run around recent changes to federal tax law.

Sen. John Moorlach releases report on California’s high-speed rail project

Today state Sen. John M. W. Moorlach, R-Costa Mesa, released a new report reevaluating the controversial California High-Speed Rail project:

Although some parts of the project have been called into question by Gov. Gavin Newsom, it remains very much alive and continues to consume billions of dollars of the taxpayers’ money.

Sen. Moorlach’s 43-page report reviews the reasons for and against the project, including: federal funding, local problems, comparisons with high-speed rail projects in Asia and Europe, electric power lines’ impact on the recent spate of wildfires, Democrats opposing the project and alternatives that would better advance environmental goals while more efficiently transporting people across the state.

The report concludes with a discussion of Sen. Moorlach’s proposal for a California Autobahn-style project that would add lanes without speed limits to the 5 and 99 freeways, which he calls the High-Speed Road.
