Raided CA Transit Funding May Return

The California Supreme Court upheld a lower court ruling that funding for bus and train service could not be taken for other uses.

"The court late Wednesday turned away an appeal by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's administration, which was seeking the right to divert $3.4 billion in transit funds to the general fund to ease the state budget deficit. That left intact the ruling of the 3rd District Court of Appeal this summer that recent funding diversions violated a series of voter measures supporting transit taxes."
