WASHINGTON, Aug 3 (Reuters) - California plans to compete
for billions in funding for rail projects in a new $1 trillion
bipartisan infrastructure bill that was introduced in the U.S.
"This is a once in a lifetime investment in rail. We see
somewhere between $20-30 billion in funding we can compete in to
get funds for the California high-speed rail project, and thats
what we intend to do," said Melissa Figueroa, a spokeswoman for
California's high speed rail authority.
