Sacramento, CA – Today, Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D – Oakley) issued the following statement after the public was notified earlier this week that the first segment of high-speed rail will be delayed 17 months and cost an additional $63 million to complete:

“The latest news about construction delays and excess costs is yet another example of the plague that continues to infect our Nation's first high-speed rail train.

“It is paramount that the legislature take an increased role in ensuring our residents receive what they were promised. My bill, AB 1813, would add two members of the legislature to the Authority. This will strengthen overall confidence that the project will be built successfully, on-time, and within budget."
