The California High-Speed Rail Authority has approved a revised business plan for the state's $68.4 billion high-speed rail project. The vote was preceded by public comment, much of it -- but not all -- favoring the bullet train. CHSRA Chairman Dan Richard likened contention over the project to the early stages of work on the Bay Area Rapid Transit system in the San Francisco Bay area. "This project will have a similar impact and people will look back and say, 'Thank God they did it,'" he said. The proposal now moves to the state legislature.
