Exempting CEQA review of the High Speed Rail Project
Original post made by Morris Brown, Menlo Park: Park Forest, on Jun 6, 2012
Steinberg will be using all the tricks possible in pushing the Legislature to pass this shameful, disgusting measure; it will be on a fast track basis, bypassing committees and thereby circumventing much public comment.
The Sierra Club of California has just issued strong objection to this tactic. View the letter at: Web Link
The final sentence:
â€śIn the interest of the environment, and in the interest of rebuilding public support for rail in this state, we urge you, in the strongest possible terms, to abandon the proposal to weaken environmental review for the high-speed rail system."
tells the story.
Everyone should write or call their State Assembly and Senate representatives, and urge them to stop this measure.
