American High-Speed Rail Act

This bill addresses high-speed rail corridor development in the United States, including by providing additional funding for high-speed rail corridor planning, and developing comprehensive, performance-based safety regulations and standards for all high-speed rail projects.

The federal share of a project financed under this bill may be up to 100%.

The Department of Transportation must prioritize financing capital projects in high-speed rail corridors with respect to which at least 20% of the project cost is funded through specified financial sources.
