State money needs to go into improving roads

In my humble opinion, the California government needs to cancel all funding of the California High Speed Rail project and give it to Caltrans for our statewide road and highway system. I have read there are plenty of lawsuits involving farmers’ land being divided by the route in the Central and Southern San Joaquin Valley, and having California State Route 99 in Fresno, known as the Golden State Freeway, moved because of the rail being built. Another idea suggested by my buddy Richard is to build the high speed rail on the Amtrak line instead. Finally Gov. Jerry Brown is doing the right thing by looking into our infrastructure, and perhaps more money can be added to the suggested $59 billion total for road repairs in this state.
