HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Sunday Governor Linda Lingle met with the U.S. Secretary of Transportation to talk about Honolulu's rail project.

"I let the Secretary know that we'll be doing a separate independent financial analysis of the plan for the rail and I suggested to him that we take our financial analysis and the one that they will have done that the government requires at the federal level and share that information so that we're all working from the same set of numbers", said Lingle.

That way, Governor Lingle says the public can have one set of numbers to look at when judging if Hawaii can afford rail in the long run.

The meeting is part of the Governor's agenda in Washington D.C..

She's there for the National Governor's Association winter meeting.
