Governor Jerry Brown asked the state Supreme Court to block two court rulings that hindered the flow of state cash to the high-speed rail project. The CAHSR Authority argued that the rulings are creating a domino effect that jeopardizes federal matching funds and needlessly adds uncertainty to the project. The high court has not decided whether to listen to the state’s case or not. Additionally, the governor is also seeking a $29 million loan to keep the project going in his proposed state budget. While that happens, Amtrak and the CAHSRA released a joint proposal that would provide next-generation trainsets for both the Northeast Corridor and the future state HSR line.
