Talks about the future of California’s high speed rail continue. Yesterday, the California High-Speed Rail Authority board listened to hours of public comments from residents who will be affected by the construction.

Among some of the concerns expressed, many opponents are worried that the construction will stir up dust particles that will increase exposure to Valley fever. Joining Take Two for an update is Tim Sheehan of the Fresno Bee.
