State Sen. Andy Vidak came to the Fresno Rescue Mission on Friday to rail against California’s bullet-train plans. — and was met by a bipartisan crowd.
The Hanford Republican announced a quartet of bills “aimed at driving a stake through the heart” of high-speed rail Friday afternoon outside the Rescue Mission, which provides shelter and services for the homeless on G Street south of Ventura Street near downtown Fresno. It sits along a section of the proposed high-speed train line where construction could begin later this year.
As the Senate is controlled by Democrats, however, it is questionable whether any of the bills will gain traction.
