CA Legislature Guts Transit Budget

"It's quite disappointing that when it came down to reducing the budget, public transit really took the lion's share of cuts," said Carli Paine of the Oakland-based Transportation and Land Use Coalition. The cuts were especially disappointing since there is a major surplus in a special fuel tax fund that legislators agreed 30 years ago to reserve for public transit.
