Brian Kelly is Secretary of the California Transportation Agency.

On Capital Public Radio's Insight today, Kelly said high speed rail must persevere despite litigation against the project and opposition in Washington for its $68 billion price tag. 

"Yes the drought is the most recent crisis and challenge before us but we have to keep our eye on the long term and the long term in California should include viable mobility options for people to get around this great state. High speed rail, I think, is an important element in connecting our regions in a very convenient, clean and fast way."

Governor Jerry Brown is expected to put high speed rail on his list of priorities during his State of the State address tomorrow morning.
