    California transportation planning

    Is there special transportation planning issues in California? I am finding a topic for my paper.

    Thanks!

    o 37M people, many in CAA nonattainment basins.

    o sprawl impacting ecosystems.

    o the sheer amount of infrastructure $ in areas susceptible to disaster - flood, quake, fire.

    o Deferred maintenance as standard policy for infrastructure.

    High Speed Rail;
    Freeway planning and mass revolt against it;
    Funding of transportation (through ballot box initiatives such as 1/4 sales tax increase)
    Providing mass transit in the central valley
    Hot Lanes/Congestion pricing (Bay Area/SoCal)
    Transportation planning versus environmental concerns
    Men do dumb $hit... it is what they do to correct the problem that counts.
