The Times-Picayune is reporting tonight that Louisiana's Transportation Department, whose head was appointed by Governor Jindal, will seek federal money to fund a high-speed rail line from New Orleans to Baton Rouge. This despite Governor Jindal's insistence in his bad children's theatre monologue GOP response to President Obama's address Tuesday night that federal funding for high-speed rail service is wasteful. It seems there may be a future for transit in Louisiana after all. H/t TPM.
