The deadline has passed for the state to apply for $300 million of Federal stimulus money to build a high speed rail line between Baton Rouge and New Orleans.
The rail has had wide support in both communities , among business people and politicians.
An application would seem to have been a no brainer. However, the governor has repeatedly stated that even if the rail were built, Louisiana cannot afford the $18 million annual maintenance and upkeep.
