MR. CABRAL: Good evening. For the record, I’m state representative Tony Carbal. I’m the state representative for this part of the city where the South Terminal Project is located. I want you to know that
I’ve been a strong supporter of this project from day one. We’ve been working very closely for a couple of years now to secure and move this project forward. We helped secure along with the administration the funding the initial funding which is not –- it’s 35 million dollars that has been already set aside for this project, capital money, bond money for this project. Will it need more? Perhaps it will depending on the
design and depending on what the project will eventually be used for.
