Why did the Governors of Wisconsin and Ohio refuse high speed rail projects in their states?



  1. 0 Votes

    They believe it wouldn’t be a wise economical decision to begin high-speed rail projects in their states. Ohio governor John Kasich thinks that it wouldn’t be used enough and in the end would become an economic burden. Wisconsin governor Scott Walker is also refusing the federal money because he doesn’t want the taxpayers of Wisconsin to pay for it. He thinks the money should go towards fixing existing roads and infrastructure.

    Both John Kasich and Scott Walker are incoming governors for Ohio and Wisconsin.  Their predecessors were proponents of the projects and were disappointed in the new governor’s decision to halt the project.  The money allocated to the rail project will not be redirected to other Ohio and Wisconsin projects but redistributed to states going through with their own high-speed rail projects.
