Fla. Supreme Court Says Governor Can Reject Rail Funds

The Florida Supreme Court on Friday upheld Gov. Rick Scott’s decision to reject more than $2 billion in federal funds to build a high-speed rail link between Tampa and Orlando, which had been a major part of the Obama administration’s plan for a nationwide network.

The unanimous decision came on the day the federal government had given Florida as a deadline to either accept the money or see it transferred for rail projects in other states.
