Conclusion If this high speed rail in California is built the school system will be at its bare minimums, will devastate the future of California’s agriculture industry, furthermore it will not produce long term steady jobs to boost the economy. Americans always want bigger and better things or the fast paced life style. Is it better to have luxury when the state is at a time in crisis and can barely afford to stay running? Sometimes people rush into things just because it is new or seems like a great idea. When voting for this high speed rail to come ripping through the heart of California Americans need to think about the future and what is at stake. Schools keep students educated so they could go out and be successful person, agriculture feeds California and produces jobs that feeds workers families. California is a great state and should not be torn apart by a train. References Behrens, Z. (2010, september 14). China and japan want to build and finance California's high speed rail system:Laist.
