An ultra high speed train is being considered to connect the west part of the state to the east side. The Train could reach speeds of up to 250 miles per mama that's fast!

Here's the downside...$$$ the rail would cost the State (You) millions of dollars and take years to turn into reality. Governor Inslee is asking for another $3.6 million dollars to study the feasibility of such a service they've already spent over $300,000 grand in research of this topic...

Currently it takes 3 hours to get to Seattle from Tri-Cities via car ride, an hour or less if you fly...  not so sure the Tri-Cities or our State for that matter needs this really high priced service!
