The Surface Transportation Board (STB) officially declined to get involved in the Texas Central Railway (TCR) proposed Dallas-to-Houston High-Speed Rail project.

Brady is leading a congressional fight, along with Texans Against High-Speed Rail.
“This is the answer we fought for,” Brady said in the release. “This is the first victory in a long battle to ensure that Texas, not Washington, decides the fate of a project hurting our rural communities and landowners.”
A proposed high-speed rail line between Houston and Dallas will remain a mostly Texas matter following a federal decision which opponents cheered as a blow to the project, while backers said provided a definitive scope of the planning process.

With yet more unconscionable police shootings here at home, and brutal terrorist attacks occurring almost daily throughout the world, America needs real leadership at all levels.

It’s time we get our remarkable nation back on the right track.
