Alan Mann, Insurance brokerage manager: It seems an enormous amount of money without seeing the gain. I find it hard to imagine that so many people need to travel the route they plan to make it cost effective. Iím willing to be convinced, but Iíve not heard a good explanation on why it is worth the cost. I think Jerry Brown is doing a good job this term as governor, and thatís why Iím willing to listen. If he wasnít behind it, I would probably be against it.
