CONGRESSMEN ASK CHAO TO NOT EXTEND THE BRIGHTLINE DEADLINE FOR SELLING PRIVATE ACTIVITY BONDS.
We are pleased to report that a very important letter was sent to Transportation Secretary Chao yesterday. The attached letter makes common sense to all familiar with the All Aboard Florida/Virgin Trains project which has already killed 11 people in southeast Florida. Until there are safety regulations promulgated in the state of Florida governing trains going 80 – 125 mph, the US Dept. of Transportation has no business extending the deadline for the sale of the Private Activity Bonds to fund the Palm Beach to Orlando airport segment of the route.
