Tom Barrett on Technology
Former Democratic Representative (WI-5)
BARRETT: We had this type of debate when we started the Hiawatha several years ago, and what we've seen is an increase in ridership between Chicago and Milwaukee. I think the same thing will occur with the ridership between Milwaukee and Madison, and bear in mind, this is really about Chicago and the Twin Cities, where Wisconsin is the major beneficiary of a high speed rail line. I do believe there will be economic growth, I do think it'll support the ridership, and it's important to note that Scott Walker [pledged to] stop this train. I think he could stop this train. Do I think there will be cost overruns? No, because I'll make sure there are not, just like I made sure there weren't when we had the rehabilitation of City Hall.
