Isn't the Governor GOP, and wasn't he in favor of building a new maintenance facility? A change of controlling political party in State government wouldn't affect what one party wanted to do if it had fully funded it. The previous legislature bought the trains, but somehow forgot to fund the maintenance facility. Now, the lack of the maintenance facility puts at risk the trains they had funded. Poor leadership, if you ask me... they should have fully funded what they desired.....
