The Republican lawmaker in line to head the House Transportation Committee says he wants to re-examine one of President Barack Obama's signature programs — $10 billion in federal grants for high-speed train service,
Florida Rep. John Mica, the comittee's ranking GOP member, told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday that he believes high-speed trains are a good idea, but he doesn't agree with the projects selected by the Transportation Department for funding.
The biggest awards announced last January were $2.3 billion to California to begin work on an 800-mile-long, high-speed rail line tying Sacramento and the San Francisco Bay area to Los Angeles and San Diego and $1.25 billion to Florida to build a rail line connecting Tampa on the West Coast with Orlando in the middle of the state, eventually going south to Miami.
