No on Ballot Measure 3

Posted: Friday, November 01, 2002

Do you want to pay $200 million for a risky project that has already been shown to be difficult to complete? Then vote no on Ballot Measure 3, a gas pipeline development authority.

The government lacks the expertise and experience for this big, risky project. Industry studies have shown that an oversupply of liquefied gas will lead to depressed prices in the foreseeable future. This would make the project a financially shaky one. The feasibility study has an estimated cost of $200 million. Since there is no assurance that the pipeline would be built, such a cost is likely a waste of money that the state can't afford.

So vote "no" on ballot measure 3, the gas pipeline development authority.
