Money for high-speed rail

States seek stimulus money for high-speed rail:
"Governors from Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin have sent a letter to U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood asking for his support.

A first phase would upgrade passenger-train routes from Chicago to St. Louis, from Chicago to Madison, Wis., and from Chicago to Pontiac, Mich., via Detroit.

Officials say the cost of the initial phase would be around $3.5 billion and that it could be done by 2014.

A later phase would develop the St. Louis-to-Kansas City route."
