It’s official: Florida rejects high-speed rail funds

The Florida Supreme Court ruled Friday that it was legal for Gov. Rick Scott to reject $2 billion-plus in federal funds for a high-speed rail line between Tampa and Orlando.

Here’s coverage by Reuters. There is no official word yet from the U.S. Department of Transportation where the $2 billion will instead be going. But California profited when Wisconsin and Ohio both rejected federal funds for high-speed rail.
