Transportation official to step down from high-speed rail panel

"Los Angeles transportation official Richard Katz is stepping down from the state panel overseeing development of California's $43-billion high-speed rail system," the LA Times is reporting. "Katz and California High-Speed Rail Authority Chairman Curt Pringle have been the focus of a state attorney general's review to determine if the state and local positions they hold are legally 'incompatible' because of the potentially overlapping interests on rights-of-way, station locations and other matters."
