Even as a state judge faulted the CAHSR Authority for not having all the funds for constructing an initial operating segment, the construction joint venture led by Tutor Perini is on its way to Fresno to set up shop this week. A Fresno job board is collecting applications for a new hire training program that has received intense interest despite having only 25 positions available for the moment. The San Joaquin Valley business community believes this will be the start of a major economic boost that the disadvantaged area is in dire need of.

Through an op-ed piece, Coupal believes placing the HSR issue back on the ballot would entail fiscal and political benefits no matter how the voters decide.
