|Sandag Plan Takes a Hit|
|A Tuesday court ruling found the San Diego Association of Government’s 40-year transportation plan violated California environmental regulations. |
|What it Means|
|For now, the future of Sandag’s plan is uncertain. The organization could negotiate changes to the plan, or it could appeal the judgment — further testing what is already a pioneering court decision on regional groups’ burden under state environmental laws. |
|What They’re Saying|
|Lawyers for the plan’s opponents said they hope Sandag will consider ways to make the plan legal; a Sandag spokesperson said the organization supports its plan and believes it complies with environmental requirements. Sandag’s board will meet Friday to discuss how to proceed.
