Transportation Committee chair wants legislators on bullet train panel – LA Times

Tuesday, February 9, 2016

Assemblyman Jim Frazier (D-Oakley), who chairs the Assembly's Transportation Committee, introduced a bill Tuesday that would add one sitting legislator from each house as a non-voting member to the bullet train's existing nine member governing panel.

“It is the Legislature’s job to act in the interest of California’s residents and participate in conversations about a program of this size and complexity,” Frazier said in a written statement.
