High-speed rail supporters in Florida have just three days to convince the federal government the project can go forward without state involvement.
It appears though that they still need the governor's signature to hand over the land the Tampa-to-Orlando line would be built on.
Tuesday, Gov. Rick Scott seemed more skeptical about the project, but for the first time admitted to not consulting with his own Department of Transportation before rejecting a $2.4 million federal grant.
During his campaign, Scott said he'd wait on a feasibility study before making a decision on the grant, but that study hasn't been completed.
However, Scott says he has all the evidence he needs.
“Look at ridership studies, all right, if you look at the ridership studies, there's no way in the world that we're not going to have operating losses. I mean, look at Tri-Rail. I mean, Tri-Rail is almost 65 million dollars operating costs; the fares only cover 10 million of it.”
Scott says he doesn't want taxpayers to be responsible for potential cost over-runs.
