Fresno High Speed Rail Lunch Event — Tuesday August 20th
Forget Elon Musk’s Hyperloop — high speed rail is coming to California. Construction is slated to begin in California’s San Joaquin Valley in the next few months (and possibly sooner). What will the impact be on the Valley’s cities, farms, and pocketbooks? How can Valley leaders ensure that the system maximizes the economic and environmental benefits for residents?
Join the UC Berkeley and UCLA Schools of Law for a lunchtime forum in downtown Fresno on high speed rail implementation on August 20th. This event will discuss these issues and offer policy ideas to address the challenges. The two law schools will also release a joint report at the event on this topic as part of the Climate Change and Business Research Initiative, entitled “A High Speed Foundation.”
