Rail Authority Chairman Makes 'Bunk' Comment

Posted: Updated:
Los Angeles, CA -

(FOX 11) California Rail Authority Chairman Dan Richard commented on a recent article by Morris Brown, founder of DERAIL, a grassroots effort against the current high-speed rail plan.

Brown, a fan of high-speed rail, tells our investigative producer Heidi Cuda the current "blended" plan violates the law.

Brown claims the rail authority didn't present a "required funding plan" before getting the greenlight to spend money.

The first comment at the bottom of an article Brown wrote on the political website, Fox & Hounds Daily, comes from Dan Richard, who called the article "pure bunk."

Brown says he'd like Richard to elaborate.

    This week we want to make a federal case for Joseph (1998) finding a forever family, so we obtained the necessary clearances to accompany Joseph to the Los Angeles Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). And during our friendly investigation, we found Joseph to be a dynamic teen with a good bit of focus and determination for someone his age.
