California House Republicans are pressuring the Trump administration to withhold a $650 million federal grant to fund a San Francisco Bay Area train system that would support the state's high-speed rail project.
Members of the state's GOP delegation sent a letter to Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao asking her for a delay on the grant until an audit of the bullet train's finances can be made available.
AirTalk host Larry Mantle brings together two opposing voices, Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Turlock) and Jim Costa (D-Fresno) to debate the future of California's bullet train.
