Looks Like Houston Is In for 2 More, Space Race Heats UP

2 Lines and an FFGA by the end of the year. Kay Bailey has been good on rail issues. The Houston Chronicle reports:

The Federal Transit Administration is committed to helping the Metropolitan Transit Authority qualify for funding of two light rail lines by the end of the year, Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison said Tuesday.

Hutchison's statement came after a closed-door meeting in her Washington office, where FTA Administrator James Simpson and Deputy Administrator Sherry Little talked with Mayor Bill White, Metro President and CEO Frank Wilson, board chairman David Wolff and a bipartisan congressional delegation from the Houston area.

Lot's of Space Race movement lately, might have to upgrade the rankings soon.
