I think this is a bad idea right now. Ive been through there latley and theres not that much traffic right now because theres no jobs. The money they use on this project should be used to cut taxes on job creators / small businesses or to pay down Californias dept. were circling the drain people. Besides the scales will not bring in one penny to the state and only cost the taxpayers quadtrundles.

First of all Jack Batchelor is a BIG Goverment guy, so anything hes invovled in SCARES me.!!And as he sports around with another BIG Goverment Guy,Garamendi who voted for Obama-Care a bill he didnt even read you know ..NO good will come from this. It's another " Tax and Spend", project for the Liberals and more loss for freedom for us...ie.Agenda21
