California High-Speed Rail Program Gets Additional $902 Million

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger said the most populous U.S. state will receive $902 million in additional federal funds to help build high-speed passenger-train service.

The funds from the Federal Railroad Administration are on top of a $2.3 billion grant to the state in January as part of federal stimulus efforts, said Andrea McCarthy, a spokeswoman for Schwarzenegger. Details of the funds will be announced by the U.S. Transportation Department later this week, she said, without elaborating.
