The governors of eight Midwest states are on board with a proposal for a monster high-speed rail project that would eventually link cities in Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Michigan, Indiana and Ohio, with Chicago as the hub. The group would be aiming to land stimulus money for the project, but, like the Californian proposal we’ve been following, it’ll be in a tough fight for funding—a whopping 278 high-speed rail plans have been submitted for consideration, according to the AP.
