The  Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) went all out on Tuesday to let the public know that All Aboard Florida is not getting state funds as it looks to bring high-speed rail to the Sunshine State. FDOT Secretary Ananth Prasad sent a letter to All Aboard Florida President Michael Reininger in which he notes that.

“This letter is to again restate that All Aboard Florida is not receiving any state funding,” Prasad wrote. “A July 12 news story by Matt Dixon of the Naples Daily News reported that your ‘company planning documents’ showed you ‘could directly request an additional $44 million in state grants.’ However, as we have previously discussed with your company, the department will not invest state dollars in your project.”
