Stop the Toll Road --- AGAIN!

Not again! The Transportation Corridor Agencies (TCA) wants to revive their plan to build a toll road that will destroy 60 percent of San Onofre State Park. And this time, they're trying to get the federal government on their side.

The TCA has asked the U.S. Secretary of Commerce to override the California Coastal Commission's NO vote regarding the Foothill-South Toll Road. In a shocking testament to TCA's consistent and repeated failure to address the public's concerns regarding this toll road, they have urged the Department of Commerce to deny the public an opportunity to participate in a hearing on the appeal.
U.S. Secretary of Commerce Carlos Gutierrez is hearing from special interest groups and the TCA's lobbyists. Now he needs to hear from you. Don't let the Bush Administration overrule the California Coastal Commission!

Find out more -- and get a sample letter to send -- from Sierra Club's Friends of the Foothills.

Draft your own letter, email or fax that lets Commerce Secretary Carlos M. Gutierrez know you want him to save one of California's most popular and striking state parks.
