Feds reimburse Wisconsin for defunct high speed train project

Posted June 25th, 2012 @ 2:27pm

The Federal government has reimbursed Wisconsin for money spent on the now-defunct high speed rail from Milwaukee to Madison.

Under then-Governor Jim Doyle, the state spent $9 million of federal money for the link, and the state was on the hook for another $5 million.

The project was set to go with more than $800 million allocated from the Feds. However, Governor Scott Walker, upon election, canceled the train citing concern the state would handle the operating costs.
