Senator Barbara Boxer (D – CA), who chairs the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, is holding a field briefing in Los Angeles today to “examine the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) recent decision to deny the state of California a waiver under the Clean Air Act to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from motor vehicles.”
The meeting is taking place at Los Angeles City Hall. Downtown. At the heart of L.A.’s Metro Rail and bus system. Yet, the Senate committee’s website only gives you driving directions. You know, for cars.
Senate, you know I love you guys like a fat kid love cake. But, seriously, take a look at Metro’s map. All those pretty lines and numbers aren’t just for looks. Both the Red Line subway and a Rapid Bus Line cruise right past your little meeting. Hello?
Government. Alive and well in America.
