Denham urges shift in high-speed rail funds to Northeast

Rep. Jeff Denham, R-Turlock, said Friday that billions of dollars in federal funds should be spent on high-speed rail -- just not in California. Denham, the chairman of the railroads subcommittee in the House of Representatives and like many fellow House Republicans a critic of California's high-speed rail project, said the money should go instead to Amtrak's busy but aging Northeast Corridor, which serves the nation's most densely populated region.
