NORTHERN CALIFORNIA - North State Congressman Doug LaMalfa wants to use money from the high-speed rail project to improve safety on Highway 70.

LaMalfa has introduced the High-Speed Refund Act. 

It would require any discretionary grant funds provided by the Department of Transportation for the high-speed rail project to be reimbursed to the federal government.

The funds would then be used for freight and highway projects such as the widening of Highway 70.
