    Posted: July 25, 2013 | Posted by Crystal Whitfield | No Comments

    Perris Valley Metrolink Extension, Riverside – NIMBY Group Uses CEQA Lawsuit in Attempt to Derail Major Public Transit Extension Project

    COST OF CEQA MISUSE:

    • Years’ long delay of vital mass transit project that will reduce emissions
    • Over $600,000 in litigation costs for taxpayers thus far
    • Loss of 600 union and private sector construction jobs
    • Potential loss of $75 million in federal funding

    Something must be done to fix these abuses.
