"This kind of bargain is becoming more common, as power plants or other industrial facilities sprout in eastern Alameda County close to the San Joaquin County line. Pollution from those facilities mostly wafts into the Valley, while the Bay Area gets the property tax benefits."

Well since they recognize that what happens here and ends in their region affects them, it is high time that us "East Bay" folks had a conversation about how much money they are going to pay us for clogging up 580 and making it the worst commute in the Bay Area. How about all the pollution from the hundreds of thousands of vehicle trips coming from San Joaquin County in Alameda County, eh?

I want the Alameda County Board of Supervisors to take up this issue ASAP, since it clearly recognized by San Joaquin that what our county brings into theirs affects them; surely this works both ways.
