High Speed Train Update

A note from Supervisor Lovingood: Las Vegas train project passes major milestone

Late last year, I met with Virgin Trains USA officials and received an in-depth briefing on their plan to build a high-speed train between Victorville and Las Vegas. This week, Virgin Trains USA won an important approval as the state’s Debt Limit Allocation Committee staff recommended that the company be allowed to sell tax-exempt debt to private investors to fund the project.
The beauty of this plan is that it is financed by the private sector. Investors, not taxpayers, will take on the financial risk. The public will get the benefit of having an alternative route to Las Vegas that will remove an estimated 4.5 million cars from the road each year. Virgin Trains plans to lay tracks in the center median along Interstate 15 between Victorville and Las Vegas. Construction is expected to begin in 2020, with train operations beginning in 2023.

Yes, it's a Scam

From County Supervisor Robert Lovingood

Social Security phone scam spreads

A growing scam involves people pretending to be from the Social Security Administration who try to get your Social Security number or your money. The Federal Trade Commission reports that scam is now growing exponentially. Scammers say your Social Security number has been suspended because of suspicious activity, or because it’s been involved in a crime. Sometimes, the scammer wants you to confirm your SSN to reactivate it. Sometimes, he’ll say your bank account is about to be seized. Never give any part of your Social Security number to anyone who contacts you. Or your bank account or credit card number. Check your credit report regularly.  If you get one of these calls, call the Social Security Administration’s Fraud Hotline at 1-800-269-0271 or tell the FTC at ftc.gov/complaint.
