The recent snowball of bad press surrounding California's high-speed rail plan has claimed one of its first victims. Amid worries of "overlapping interests," regarding his role at MTA and Metrolink, former Assemblyman Richard Katz will step down from his role overseeing development of the high-speed rail, reports the LA Times. The High Speed Rail Blog on Katz's resignation, as well as Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle, who also currently serves on the board: "The criticism they have drawn is primarily intended to undermine the project itself, and while I haven’t agreed with everything they’ve done, I know that without them we would not be on the verge of building the first HSR segment in California."
