via CNN

The Biden administration has allocated $8.2 billion for passenger rail projects in the United States, including a high-speed rail system.

These projects are expected to create jobs, boost economic opportunities, and provide climate-friendly travel options.

The California Inaugural High-Speed Rail Service Project and the Brightline West project are among the key recipients of this funding, aiming to offer high-speed travel and all-electric trainsets powered by renewable energy. (Trending: Democrat Found Guilty In Corruption Trial)

The initiative aligns with the global push for cleaner energy and reduced carbon emissions.

The investment is seen as a significant step in advancing the country’s infrastructure and competitiveness in high-speed rail technology.

“These historic projects will create tens of thousands of good-paying, union jobs, unlock economic opportunity for communities across the country, and open up safe, comfortable, and climate-friendly travel options,” the White House said.

“This is not just an investment in high-speed rail, it’s an investment in jobs, the climate, and our future. This project is proof that America can still do — and build — big things,” former California Gov. Jerry Brown said.

“This investment by the Biden Administration represents a milestone in advancing our progress and making us competitive with the 26 nations that currently have fast, clean, and safe high-speed trains,” U.S. High-Speed Rail President and CEO Andy Kunz said.
