Q&A: CA State Senator Tom McClintock
Thursday, 01 June 2006

PT talks to Tom McClintock, State Senator for California's 19th District and candidate for Lieutenant Governor, about the on-again, off-again nature of the state's infrastructure bond negotiations leading up to the final passage. McClintock's was the only "no" vote on SB 1266, a $19.9 billion transportation bond that will come before voters in November.

May/June 2006

PT: After some positive signs at the beginning of the year, negotiations derailed and came back online several times before the final $37 billion package came to pass. What's going on here?

February 1, 2006 - California Ed.

PT: Sacramento seems to have infrastructure fever these days. What do you make of it all?

Oropeza: I'm pleased that the governor has acknowledged the need for us to invest in our bricks-and-mortar infrastructure in the state, because we've allowed it to erode and there's a great deal of unmet need.

PT: Across the aisle in Sacramento, what would most people agree to be the most pressing infrastructure projects in California right now?

Oropeza: I think that there is a lot of bipartisan agreeme...
