State drops rail plan -- not because Jindal was taking heat.

State drops proposed Baton Rouge-New Orleans line | News for New Orleans, Louisiana | Top Stories | News and Weather for New Orleans |
The state has dropped a plan to seek about $300 million of federal aid to launch passenger railroad service between Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

Ankner later said he was not pressured by Gov. Bobby Jindal's office to drop the proposal because of any political considerations.
You may recall that Jindal came out against rail subsidies in his famous speech.
