"AAF has claimed that it is a private enterprise. But the evidence does not support this claim." - Brent Hanlon

Tune into a statement by Brent Hanlon, Chairman of Citizens Against Rail Expansion (CARE FL) after the hearing with the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Railroads, Pipelines, and Hazardous Materials Hearing.

During this hearing, All Aboard Florida's Brightline was challenged that their company's claims of being 100% privately funded were false and that some of the federally-backed loans and private equity bonds being pursued included federal money.

"Mr. Reininger used his testimony today in a vain attempt to rewrite history by blaming bureaucracy for the lack of a Record of Decision (ROD) in AAF's National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review," Hanlon states. "...We will continue to hold AAF accountable and call attention to their actions."
