High-speed rail a highlight of Brown's China trip
April 05, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press
SACRAMENTO -- Gov. Jerry Brown will be eyeing China's massive high-speed rail system as he tries to lure billions of dollars in investments to California during his trip to the country next week.

In an interview Thursday with a handful of reporters, Brown says the Chinese have approached building high-speed rail "with exuberance." He says his $68 billion rail plan is "taking technology and imagination and reshaping our future," even as public support for the project has fallen.

Brown says he would welcome Chinese investment in California's high-speed rail project, although that probably will have to wait until some of the bullet train line is built.

China's high-speed system spans 5,800 miles but is highly subsidized by the government and does not face the same legal and environmental hurdles.
