    A few items that need attention here.

    –Best double-check the links on the 405 toll lane story; both links lead to the same opinion post.
    –Bad link on the CalEnviroScreen story.
    –“CalEnviroScreen Climate Change Funds” is kind of a misnomer. The funding in question comes from the AB 32 cap-and-trade program; CalEnviroScreen is an analytical tool that’s being used to help define “disadvantaged communities” and determine how some of the funds get distributed. I suggest “cap-and-trade funds” or “disadvantaged communities funds.”

    Thanks for proofreading! I’ve fixed the erroneous links. I agree that the CalEnviroScreen wording is awkward – kind of a misnomer – but it was my attempt to sort of smush a couple of things together… and I think, though, not great, it conveys the crux of the article as short and accessibly as I could.
