Wisconsin YAL takes on High-Speed Rail Controversy

After witnessing the endless controversy in our state newspapers concerning the proposed high-speed rail connecting Milwaukee and Madison, YAL Wisconsin decided to take a position on the issue and write a letter to our student paper.  To catch everyone up, Washington is offering a “free” $810 million grant to our state to build a high-speed rail to provide employment for Wisconsin.  Our outgoing Democratic governor said he would accept the money, but in November a new Republican governor won the gubernatorial contest campaigning on the promise to kill the project.  This has sparked huge controversy and is probably the biggest issue in Wisconsin right now.  Hopefully our editorial changed a few minds and will attract more members to our group.  Read it here and remember to comment!
