Sen. Dianne Feinstein expressed doubt about the availability of federal funding for the city's public transportation revamp in an interview with Patch during a speaking engagement in Century City on Tuesday.
During a Century City speaking engagement, Feinstein told Patch that she believes is "brilliant," but that she is unsure where the federal funds to support it would come from.
"Right now, no one knows where that [money] is," Feinstein said.
The 30/10 Initiative, also called "America Fast Forward," seeks to use long-term revenue from the Los Angeles County-approved Measure R sales tax as collateral for long-term bonds that, in addition to a federal loan, would allow the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to construct 12 mass transit projects in 10 years.
Feinstein also said the controversy over the exact location of the is frustrating, but that "it will work itself out."
Feinstein also told Patch that she did speak to Northrup Grumman CEO Wes Bush about the move of 200 of the company's executives to Northern Virginia so that they could be closer to Washington, D.C.
"I obviously regret the move," she said, pointing out that she does not run the company.
