Featured Headline: Governor Jerry Brown vetoed A.B. 650, legislation by Valley Assemblyman Bob Blumenfield that would have created a Blue Ribbon Commission to study transit and T.O.D. opportunities around the state.  Blumenfield argued the legislation provided a chance for the state to think big on transit and the legislation was embraced by the League of Conservation voters.  Brown argued that the state has better ways to spend $750,000 then on something that Caltrans can do.  Read his veto message, here.
