The Trump administration is canceling close to a billion dollars in funding for the state's high speed rail project...and is also demanding the state return 2-point-5 billion dollars already spent.

This comes after Governor Gavin Newsom said during his State of the State speech that instead of building a line from San Francisco to Los Angeles, the state would focus its efforts on one between Merced and Bakersfield.  KCBS Radio and Chronicle Insider spoke with KCBS Radio anchors Jeff Bell and Patti Reising.
