California governor pulls plug on LA-SF high-speed train

California governor to rebut Trump in 1st State of State

Newsom said high speed rail was about "economic transformation" of the Central Valley, and 'we can align our economic and workforce development strategies, anchored by High-Speed Rail, and pair them with tools like opportunity zones, to form the backbone of a reinvigorated Central Valley economy'. Gavin Newsom said he's abandoning the plan as "too costly". "We'll connect the revitalized Central Valley to other parts of the state, and continue to push for more federal funding and private dollars".

"The project, as now planned, would cost too much and take too long", Newsom told lawmakers in Sacramento, the state capital.

Gov. Gavin Newsom is creating a new commission on homelessness and housing to address one of California's most hard problems.

He announced the creation of the new Commission on Homelessness & Supportive Housing to address what he said is a moral issue that has become a public health crisis. Steinberg previously was leader of the state Senate. His administration recently sued the Orange County city of Huntington Beach, accusing it of not meeting its affordable housing goals.

"Newsom also promised to have a plan within 60 days for dealing with the recent bankruptcy filing by Pacific Gas & Electric Corp. after years of devastating wildfires. There's been too little oversight and not enough transparency", Newsom said in his first State of the State Address to lawmakers on Tuesday.

The utility filed for protection last month, citing in part anticipated liabilities from wildfires that its equipment may have sparked.

California Governor Gavin Newsom said he is scuttling plans to build a high-speed railroad between Los Angeles and San Francisco, saying the ambitious project that was approved by voters is too costly.

Former California Gov. Jerry Brown agreed to deploy troops at the Trump administration's request previous year, although he said they couldn't participate in immigration enforcement. The latest estimates put the project's cost at $77 billion and a completion date set for 2033.

The state has also received $3.5 billion from the federal government, which Newsom has no intention in returning.

Carl DeMaio, chairman of the watchdog group Reform California and a former San Diego City Council member, said Newsom clearly intends to keep the high-speed rail project alive.

She went on to comment, "It was like him spitting on me, saying, 'You don't know anything, I don't trust you with anything". But his mother, Jill Wheeler, described the move as insulting and a "slap in the face", according to Undark .


In his first State of the State speech Tuesday, California Gov. Gavin Newsom wasted no time in criticizing what he called President Trump's "fear-mongering" over the "so-called "border emergency" as a "manufactured crisis" and "political theater".

The Democratic governor is likely to ratchet up his rhetoric against President Donald Trump in Tuesday's address, a month into Newsom's governorship.

"The answer to the White House, with all due respect: No more division, no more xenophobia and no more nativism", he said, one day after signing an order removing most California National Guard troops from the Mexican border.

His address will offer yet another opportunity for Newsom to outline his vision for California, a state dominated by Democrats, and contrast it with stalemates in Washington.
