... views also differed when it came to the controversial 710 Freeway extension, which aims to finish the gap between the 10 and 210 freeways.
Antonovich said that he is waiting for the completed environmental report on the project and won't make a decision on the extension until all the documents are finished.
"Until the plan is completed, you can't make a judgment until you see what the facts are," he said. "Otherwise, you're shooting from the hip and that's the wrong way of doing business."
Portantino said he is "150%" opposed to the project, which he called a "boondoggle," adding that the necessary documents that are needed to make a call on the extension are already available to the public.
"It's a $20-billion hole in the ground that doesn't solve a transportation problem," he said.

Donald Trump Makes History With Zero Major Newspaper Endorsements
Mod: Here is an accomplishment worth noting. And just so you know, it isn't just The Tattler that has a problem with this guy.
With just a little over a month until election day, Donald Trump has racked up zero major newspaper endorsements, a first for any major party nominee in American history.

Some conservative papers, which have endorsed Republicans for decades, are now breaking with tradition to endorse Hillary Clinton or, at the very least, urge their readers not to vote for Trump.
Several have taken a stand even at the expense of losing subscribers at a time when newspapers are barely staying afloat. Some papers have received death threats.
But for a growing number of newspaper editorial boards, staying on the sidelines is no longer an option.
