Metro says Va. threat jeopardizes rail cars
Metro Interim General Manager Richard Sarles on Thursday warned Virginia that if it does not act within 24 hours to renew its pledge to provide $500 million to match federal funding for Metro over the next 10 years, that it will jeopardize the contract to purchase new Metro rail cars.
Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell's administration has threatened to unravel a $1.5 billion federal funding plan for Metro unless the state gets two members on the agency's board of directors.
