Should have CA appropriated some 500M USD for planning before setting out on the project overall, perhaps.

But given that projects like these need to go into emotional politicized referendums instead of rational pro-con social-benefit analysis ... like in any civilized country, I understand why they would not do that.

Businesses also start somewhere ... and they start with a vague idea of project cost ... and then proceed. And I have seen companies commit to project before knowing final costs, in the interest of speed, and because ultimately, the mandate was to get it done ... not pu..yfoot around the budget and pre-analysis for decades before actually doing anything.

You don’t have to label me in any politic spectrum. If you do not have any intelligent arguments to justify California HSR disaster, stay aside. See the auditors report to understand what a mess the people did with lack of report, disclosure, error dealing with suppliers, etc.. be informed.
