Another $624 million in federal funding is headed to California for the state's high-speed rail project.The Obama administration is redirecting $1.2 billion in high-speed rail money originally designated for Ohio and Wisconsin to other states because their incoming governors oppose high-speed trains.

California is getting the largest share.

The $43 billion high-speed rail project would eventually link Sacramento and San Francisco to Southern California.

Construction could begin as early as 2012.
