Nobody should be surprised.  Some thought the project was a sham from get-go. ;)

Only way XpressWest is getting built is if the feds put a temporary relaxation on the Buy America laws to allow for equipment to come online built overseas and the industry opens plants here in the states. The overseas firms are dying to expand into new markets and are willing to invest in some part.
