TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The Florida Supreme Court has heard oral argument in a lawsuit challenging Gov. Rick Scott's refusal to accept $2.4 billion in federal money for the proposed Tampa-Orlando high speed rail line.
The justices held the expedited hearing Thursday and a ruling is expected Friday, the deadline for accepting the stimulus money.
It'll be sent to high speed projects in other states if Florida doesn't take it.
Two state senators, one a Democrat and the other a Republican, sued. They say state law gives the Republican governor no choice but to take the money.
Scott disagrees and says the project will leave Florida taxpayers on the hook for cost overruns and operating subsidies. Rail boosters say he's wrong.
