WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:


Tampa will be one of the first communities in the country to have a true high-speed rail line. Because of a federal stimulus grant, Florida will construct a line that starts in downtown Tampa and continues to Lakeland and Orlando.

This week there will be meetings on high-speed rail in those three cities beginning tomorrow in Tampa. As a preview, WMNF spoke with U.S. Representative Kathy Castor (D-FL).

The high-speed rail meetings in Tampa will be Tuesday at the Convention Center at 2:30 p.m. for small businesses and 6:30 p.m. for members of the public.

We will carry the second half of this interview on tomorrow’s Evening News.
