(Port funding picks up some support)….It is from the California Governor.
Governor Jerry Brown has reportedly sent a letter to the Congressional Committee on Appropriations. The letter urges federal funding for the new port planned for downtown Calexico and for the San Ysidro Port. Local officials say both ports are in desperate need of funding for the planned and ready construction expansion projects. Locals are looking at the letter as a possible Christmas present, and hope it has some impact on the Committee members.
