A West Japan Railway Co. bullet train travels through the Shin-Kobe station. California’s high-speed rail agency is suing the U.S. government over a $929-million grant. Tomohiro Ohsumi / Bloomberg

Skift Take: Maybe California’s high-speed rail agency should spend less time suing the federal government over lost grants and more time focusing on cost overruns for the state’s beleaguered bullet train. Rail can be a less-carbon-intensive form of travel, but taxpayer money should be spent wisely.
