Assembly transportation chairman eyes high-speed rail construction sites – Fresno Bee

Sunday, March 27, 2016

The chairman of the state Assembly’s Transportation Committee visited Fresno and Madera this week to get a firsthand look at high-speed rail construction less than two weeks before he conducts hearings on a new business plan for the passenger-train system.

“Like many voters in California, I voted for this project,” Frazier said Wednesday afternoon as he watched work on the Tuolumne Street bridge. “As chairman of the Transportation Committee, I’ve come here to tour the facility to see progress. … We’re going to be looking, as an oversight component, at where high-speed rail is, how we can be of help, what are the roadblocks, and to make sure that what the people asked for in their vote is being accomplished.”
