What are peoples thoughts on this project? Also how much of the cost will be covered by the state of california itself? I thought california was broke. I sure hope the rest of the countries tax dollars do not have to pay for this project during a time when california has far worse problems..

Yes, California's broke.
Yes, the moronic voters approved this.
Yes, it's going to be a boondoggle.

You are posting from Minneapolis, I'm guessing by screen name?
Not to worry about the rest of the country's tax dollars being spent in California ... California receives far less in government spending than it sends in revenue to the feds ... it is a net contributor to the nation's economy ... thus, even now in hard times, it is supporting a lot of federal spending in [mostly Red] states that contribute less than they get back.

California shouldn't get it's share of federal dollars because it has such nice weather perhaps?
