Fresno County reconsiders high-speed rail

You can skip the preliminaries and hear Michael Brady's remarks before the Fresno County Board of Supervisors starting at 7:25 on the video.

The Fresno County Board of Supervisors will vote on the issue next Tuesday. 

Kathy Hamilton examines the phony jobs claims by the state. State unions support the project because dumb projects create jobs, which is all they care about.

See the Community Coalition on High-Speed Rail on jobs and other myths about the project.

The court of appeal upheld the Pacheco Pass route, but more important litigation against the boondoggle is ongoing.

Fresno County has withdrawn its support for the high-speed rail project and voted to file an amicus brief in support of the Tos/Fukuda/Kings County lawsuit.
