    WASHINGTON — Undaunted by the looming fiscal crisis, the Obama administration said Thursday that it plans to forge ahead with its signature transportation project, investing billions of dollars in a long-term effort to build a high-speed rail network.

    “We're not giving up on high-speed rail,” Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said in testimony that was welcomed by a majority of members who attended the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee hearing. “The president will include funding in his budget. I think we'll get there with public money, but in the absence of that we'll get there with private money.”
