1Four years ago, California voters approved the sale of nearly $10 billion in bonds to help finance a $33 billion high-speed rail line between Los Angeles and San Francisco. The total cost of the rail line is now estimated at $100 billion, and there is a proposal to stop the sale of the bonds. Do you think the bond sale should be stopped? Or should it go ahead?
