Washington, D.C. - Today, Congressman Kevin Brady (TX-08) released the following statement after the Supreme Court of Texas upheld eminent domain authority for Texas Central's controversial high-speed rail project.

“This is a hard punch to Texas landowners and their property rights. But as to the insolvent high-speed rail project, this decision is inconsequential. 

With no funding, staff, board or permits to construct, Texas Central is basically a zombie train at this point – and this ruling won’t breathe life back into it.”
