California High Speed Rail
In this photo taken Tuesday, July 16, 2013, high-speed rail opponent Aaron Fukuda poses in front of his Hanford, Calif., home that lies directly in one of the planned train routes. Fukuda is one of many land owners in the Central Valley who have sued to try to stop the $68 billion project. The state is buying up hundreds of properties to start construction of the first 30 mile segment of the rail line. Voters approved plans to build the bullet train five years ago, but public opinion about the project has since soured, and many now oppose it. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)
