Fresno County rejects high-speed rail project
Fresno County supervisors vote to oppose high-speed rail
The Fresno County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday reversed its position on California's proposed high-speed rail program, voting 3-2 to oppose the project.
Supervisors Andreas Borgeas, Debbie Poochigian and Phil Larson supported Poochigian's motion to oppose California's bullet-train plans. Supervisors Judy Case McNairy and Henry R. Perea voted against the motion.
The action rescinds and revokes the county's earlier votes to support high-speed rail, and also advocates that the state Legislature place the issue back on a ballot.
The board also voted along the same 3-2 lines to support Borgeas' motion to file an amicus brief in the Kings County lawsuit against high-speed rail.
