"In a terse letter citing security concerns at the downtown federal courthouse, U.S. officials say they oppose a Sacramento Regional Transit plan for a light-rail line behind the federal building..." An earlier letter requests "that the city's expanded downtown transit center and new rail lines be built 'at an appreciable distance from the courthouse.'...
