Haahr announces Hyperloop panel

Posted online

Missouri House Speaker Elijah Haahr, R-Springfield, announced the creation of the Blue Ribbon Panel on the Hyperloop.

The panel will work to research and present recommendations on how to develop and accelerate plans for construction of the Kansas City-to-St. Louis Hyperloop.

“This project represents a transformational economic development opportunity for Missouri,” said Haahr. “Already, hundreds of millions of people around the world have read about our state’s leadership in this area. Historically, Missouri funded the first transatlantic flight, laid the first miles of the U.S. Interstate Highway system and provided the technology and manufacturing expertise that launched humanity into space. Building the first Hyperloop in North America is a natural extension of that legacy. We have a real opportunity to serve as a gateway to the future of transportation.”
