Meanwhile, lawmakers opposed to the project are crafting several bills that would bring the issue again to voters or at least hamper the project at the legislative level. One new initiative would prevent previously voter-approved bond money to be spent on HSR while Hyperloop technology is developed and would allow for the CPUC to acquire land for a demonstration. (Note that such initiatives entail signature-gathering and verification at a cost of millions.) While this may sound innovative, Kerry Cavanaugh of the LA Times warns that steel-on-steel rail technology is proven, while Hyperloop is not, and that Hyperloop may very well turn out to be unfeasible at the expense of needed intercity transportation. Colin Leach of NARP adds that, as envisioned, Hyperloop would not serve intermediate cities and in the end would lack the compatibility with conventional rail services that HSR systems worldwide enjoy.
