Texas Central Partners, LLC is a private company developing a new high-speed passenger rail system that if completed, will connect Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston using technology that will – according to their website – “provide a travel time of less than 90 minutes.”

The project is currently being proposed to various groups around the state (including members of the Harris County Republican Party) as Texas Central Partners works to finalize arrangements to begin the project. However, several questions have been raised with regard to the feasibility of the project and its potential impact on communities and land owners.

Joining the show to discuss these issues are three people directly involved with the HCRP as activists, precinct chairs, Senate District Chairs and public policy analysts:
