Thirty eight state legislators have signed a letter opposing construction of the Foothill South toll road, saying the U.S. Secretary of Commerce should not void a decision by the state Coastal Commission denying the project.
The July 22 letter escalates a war of words between the opponents and the supporters of the toll road, a 16-mile extension of the 241 toll road that would cut through San Onofre State Beach park, as well as through habitat for a variety of species.

Of course this comes after a large group of the CA Congressional Reps. (including Senator Boxer), LT Gov. Garamendi, and State Treasurer Bill Lockyer all sent letters asking that the Federal government refuse to overturn the CA Coastal Commission's decision.
