Jindal wants money for BR-NO rail line

In Gov. Bobby Jindal's official Republican response to President Obama's address to Congress on Tuesday, the governor was harshly critical of an $8 billion mass transit appropriation in the stimulus package. The governor called the money pot "wasteful."

According to this article by Times-Picayune Baton Rouge Bureau Chief Robert Travis Scott, the governor will ask for money from that fund to build a passenger rail line between Baton Rouge and New Orleans.
