Summary

President Reagan himself said in Japan on November 11, 1983: “The State of California is planning to build a rapid speed train that is adapted from your highly successful bullet train.” Yes, we were, and now we are actually building it.Like any big project, there are obstacles. But California was built on dreams and perseverance and the bolder path is still our way forward.As Lieutenant Governor, Newsom opposed the high-speed project, but flip-flopped in 2016, backing the project and promising “100 percent” to seek public funding as governor.However, upon taking office, Newsom appears to have had a change of heart — especially as he has prioritized providing health insurance to all California residents.While he had “nothing but respect for Governor Brown and Governor [Arnold] Schwarzenegger,” Newsom said that the bullet train, as planned, could not be completed.Newsroom’s announcement came just days after Democrats — including California’s own Sen. Kamala Harris — embraced the “Green New Deal,” a plan by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to move the entire country to 100% renewable energy in the next ten years.
