Ohio, Wisconsin high-speed rail money to go elsewhere

WASHINGTON — Congressional sources say the Obama administration is taking $1.2 billion in high-speed rail money away from Ohio and Wisconsin and awarding it to projects in other states.

People familiar with the grants say the Department of Transportation will announce Thursday that California, Illinois and New York, among other states, will get a share of the funds.

Republican governors opposed to high-speed rail were elected in Ohio and Wisconsin in November. They have promised to kill projects in their states.

The sources spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak publicly before the announcement.
