Kristina Rasmussen, the Executive Vice President at the Illinois Policy Institute, also gave a terrific speech on the the high speed rail project planned for Illinois.

The event was held at the updated ISU Alumni Center.
The address: 1101 N. Main Street, Normal, Illinois, 61761.
It will start at 6:30 and end at 9:30 PM.

Kristina discussed the high-speed railway boondoggle planned for Illinois. The rail line would likely cost billions and take taxpayers for a ride.

Kristina Rasmussen wrote more about the evening at The Illinois Policy Institute Blog.

Several protests were held in Illinois this year against this high-speed rail project.  Here is a video report.
