France Interested in Texas HSR Investment

The Fort Worth Star Telegram is reporting that France is showing interest in High Speed Rail in Texas.  I mentioned in a previous post that the Texas Department of Transportation’s High Speed Rail Commission was to hold a meeting this week (When the meeting summary is posted online, I’ll be sure to link it on this post).  SNCF, France’s state-owned railway company was present at that meeting to learn more.  Also of note, the article addresses the billions of dollars needed for a Texas rail system and states that Michael Morris the transportation director for the North Central Texas Council of Governments has pointed to 16 different sources of funding other that tax dollars.  This is a must read article!  Just a peek at the BIGGER picture.
