State would have been fat IF the slant piggyback onto EXISTING deep undersea ocean oil rigs had been left in the budget, like they were talking last week. Sierra club got to them AGAIN,...So we all PAY UP again ! As reported on the 22nd (still a GO at that point) the state of CA would have raked in $100 million for THIS year... $1.8 Billion over the life of the project . Some called it offshore drilling...the same hypocrites that TALK about breaking FOREIGN dependence. Fools elect fools, bought & owned by fools. So if they didn't want that $100 million for this year....NOT a penny for those fools ..not a penny! Cut some more.. Cities PAY UP for ignorance....of fools.

Your statement about the Livermore Redevelopment Agency is only partially correct. The Bankhead Theater is primarily financed by fees collected by the Altmont Landfill and private donations. It is downtown improvements and the proposed new Regional Theater that will require substantial funding from the Livermore Redevelopment Agency.
