"Ultimately, the goal of many of the residents who spoke Tuesday is not to come up with an acceptable way for the new trains to reach San Francisco, a requirement of the 2008 law that authorized the system, but to stop their northbound runs at San Jose.", www.bizjournals.com
"(AP) — Kings County officials have opted not to appeal a judge's ruling against Central Valley landowners in their ongoing lawsuit against California's high-speed rail project, clearing another legal hurdle to the bullet train. Judge Michael Kenny said the 2008 ballot initiative specified only that the state could issue bonds to construct a high-speed rail system and did not prevent modifications to the plan voters were given. California has secured another $3.2 billion in federal matching funds and the project is supposed to receive money each year from the state's greenhouse gas emission fund, which sold only a fraction of the credits expected in an auction this month.", www.sfchronicle.com
"SACRAMENTO — A critical source of funding for the state’s high-speed rail project came in substantially short this week when demand fell sharply for pollution permits sold in the state’s cap-and-trade program. The rail authority was expecting to receive $150 million Wednesday from the auction, but will instead receive $2.5 million after the state took in 2 percent of what it had anticipated netting from the final quarter of this fiscal year’s cap-and-trade auctions. The program forces large carbon dioxide emitters in the state to reduce their output of greenhouse gases by putting a cap on carbon emissions and requiring that they buy permits for any additional greenhouse gases they let off. Clegern said that the cap-and-trade program is intended to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and that if companies don’t need as many allowances above the cap on what they are permitted to pollute, the program is “working as designed.” Ross Brown,", www.sfgate.com
"With plans accelerating for the Bay Area segment of California's high-speed rail line, Palo Alto officials this week called for a more inclusive process in designing the train system and renewed their calls for rail officials to 'grade separate' the new bullet trains from crossing traffic.", paloaltoonline.com
