Rep. Jeremy Kalin is co-author of Rep. Hausman’s bill to appropriate $4,000,000 to study the feasibility of a high speed rail line between St. Paul and Chicago. This waste was passed in the bonding bill.
Gov. Pawlenty used his line item veto power to strike this squandering of tax dollars. Look here on page 1, item # 287. Thank you Governor. I hope this veto is sustained.
If there is a need for such a line that can turn a profit, private enterprise will pursue it. If government does it, it will be another black hole for more of our hard-earned money. Kalin loves to create black holes for our dollars. It is time to make this legislative session his last. It will be none too soon.
