FUTURE SHOCK: CALIFORNIA PORTS IN PERIL--
WHY ARE RECISSIONS NEEDED ON I-69 PROJECTS IN THE FY 2008 FEDERAL HIGHWAYS TRANSPORTATION BUDGET IN TEXAS, ARKANSAS, LOUISIANA, MISSISSIPPI, KENTUCKY AND INDIANA?
California elected officials should support the above recissions to the I-69 projects in the various states, because completion of these projects in future years would take away $billions of business from California, and give it to possibly the PORT OF HOUSTON, or some other port in the "NAFTA Scheme of things."

Recissions are needed to avoid Asian cargo container vessels from by-passing Los Angeles and Long Beach Ports by going through the Panama Canal to berth at the Port of Houston in future years, once the Panama Canal is widened to accomodate cargo container vessels.

Currently, these vessels do not have an alternative to the San Pedro Bay Ports. However, proposed deep water ports in Mexico and the Panama Canal expansion project, now under construction, would change things.

The Asian nations have been complaining about the high cost of port fees for over 30 years!

Cargo container fees have increased over the last 30 years, and have not decreased.

Environment regulations of the California Coastal Commission, the Bay Conservation Development Commission (BCDC), and the South Coast Air Quality Management District have added more costs for compliance.

Practicality would tell one that should Asian cargo container vessels by-pass Los Angeles/Long Beach in future years, it would be cost beneficial to the Asian cargo container vessels.

ONE CAN THANK BILL CLINTON, GEORGE W. BUSH AND NAFTA FOR THIS DEVELOPMENT!

K007, Inc. is a consulting firm specializing in the California Coastal Act of 1976-77. The principle, Robert E. Fisher, MSW, monitored the California Coastal Commission by attending 2 day monthly meetings in coastal cities up and down the California Coast from 1974-78. During this time the California Coastal Commission adopted its Administrative Rules, Regulations and Guidelines.
