Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The proposed financing system is to be a public-private arrangement. I can't judge whether this is good or bad in this case

Me neither, depends on the details -- if risks and profits are shared properly and it isn't shaped up to give lots of money to construction companies, it may be a step ahead in the US situation. Especially if the railroad companies don't have the capital to build the new lines, but especially not if they do and only drag their feet.

the eastern farmers don't want to give up their land.

Is that a categoric rejection, or do they think the offered compensation is insufficient?
