Governor Susana Martinez doesn't like the Rail Runner between Belen and Santa Fe. The new republican governors of Florida, Ohio, and Wisconsin don't want the trains either and have turned down funds to get high speed systems started. Is this coincidence? Or are these new governors taking orders from the national GOP on behalf of the oil and gas industry and others who would be hurt by this kind of public transportation.
I don't think this is entirely coincidence. They are all republican. They are being manipulated by the GOP and are ignoring the best interests of their states.
