A major contractor for California's bullet train is blaming the state for delays in building.
A letter from the contractor obtained by the Los Angeles Times contradicts the state's claims that the high speed rail line's construction pace is on target. The project faces several issues such as delays in obtaining land and failure to finalize deals with utilities and freight railroads. Construction giant Tutor Perini says that the delays will result in layoffs. The rail authority will evaluate the letter.
