"For him to come in and say we're going to roll this project back".
Plans for an LA-San Francisco bullet train had been backed by Newsom's predecessors Jerry Brown and Arnold Schwarzenegger and the line was expected to be completed in 2033, years behind schedule.
California was one of the first US states to champion a government-owned high-speed rail system like those that are ubiquitous in parts of Europe and Asia. "I wish there were". Newsom said he would make sure the contractors who are responsible for building the project are held accountable, especially on the cost front.
The project, he said, would "cost too much" and "take too long" to be feasible.
"I do not support the WaterFix as now configured", Newsom said of the estimated $17 billion water project to build two massive tunnels underneath the state's most important estuary. The main reason: if the project was canceled the state would have to return $3.5 billion from the federal government. He declined to discuss what he saw as the train's future on the campaign trail, but after he was elected he suggested some sort of cutback was coming, possibly eliminating the bottom half of the project, making it a train from San Francisco to the Central Valley of California.
U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Republicans cited a recent Democratic clean energy proposal in noting the project's demise, tweeting that "the plug gets pulled on the frequently delayed, over-budget San Francisco-LA (high-speed rail) project". This is [California's] money, allocated by Congress for this project. During that time, the traveler would cover more high-speed rail mileage than the current length of the entire French system.
"Let's get something done once and for all", he said, arguing the Central Valley should not be left out of the project's "economic transformation".
Newsom also said that there "simply isn't a path" that connects the northern and southern regions.
"The federal government has put $3.5 billion into it", Devore said.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom is preparing to deliver his first State of the State address a day after declaring he wouldn't participate in the Trump administration's "political theater" over border security.
"Last week, we heard (Trump) stand up at the State of the Union and offer a vision of an America fundamentally at odds with California values", he said.
'He described a country where inequality didn't seem to be a problem, where climate change didn't exist, and where the greatest threat we face comes from families seeking asylum at the border, ' Newsom continued.
He announced the creation of the new Commission on Homelessness & Supportive Housing to address what he said is a moral issue that has become a public health crisis.
"Taking care of each other, showing courage when it matters most - this is what we do in California", the governor said after recognizing Pierce in the Assembly gallery.
