How will this work out?

Sac Bee Capitol Alert has the story:
Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein this week added her voice to the chorus of those who want the California Department of Transportation to take over the state’s increasingly controversial high-speed rail project.
In a letter to Gov. Jerry Brown made public Tuesday, Feinstein declared that “deploying the expertise and resources of CalTrans towards this effort over the next six months” could help turn the project around. Tellingly, Feinstein added that she has spoken about the idea with Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood; LaHood, the senator reported, agrees with “the importance of utilizing CalTrans’ expertise.”
Arnolds Cho0-Choo does not pencil out, so how does turning it over to Caltrans change that equation. They do have some practical train experiences, with Caltrain. Maybe they can inject some reality into the planning.
