This is a ridiculous bill. I live in Santa Teresa and this rail yard will devalue my home along with most of the community in the area. The worst thing of all is that the tap water is already polluted with arsenic. The levels of arsenic are higher than what the EPA allows. Every quarter year we get this warning from the county about the water being unsafe but the Governor or her cronies do nothing about it. Except to bring more polluters to the area!!!!!!!!!! Sun News why don't you investigate that for a change??????????

They forgot to mention the unwanted illegals it will bring to the area.

More tax breaks for wealthy, out-of-state corporations, but no "new" cigarette taxes = increased budget deficit.

It is amazing what can happen when you know the right people. I thought that type of business was going to cease with our Governors transparency motto. The wicked prevail as always.
