CARE FL Exposes Truth Train Funding

Brent Hanlon, the chairman of Citizens Against Rail Expansion in Florida says Brightline is looking for public dollars to continue to finance the high-speed passenger rail system from Miami to Orlando.  Mr. Hanlon sheds some light about the claims Brightline is making in the following guest column:

 “While consistently claiming to be a private venture, All Aboard Florida has sought public subsidies over and over, bouncing back and forth between whatever option is most expedient at the time. It began in 2013 with a more than $1.1 billion Railroad Rehabilitation & Improvement Financing loan, followed in 2014 by a $1.75 billion private activity bond allocation, and now in 2017, the company is crawling back to the RRIF loan again.”
