MTC "Exceeded Their Statutory Authority"

Whatever their reasons were, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission's decision to move from downtown Oakland to a former tank factory in SOMA made a lot a of people angry. Angry politicians and lawyers have a way of throwing wrenches into the workings of bureaucratic decision making, and in this case, State Senator Mark DeSaulnier asked his legislative counsel to determine if the MTC could actually do such a terrible thing. Apparently not. The counsel says they've exceeded their statutory authority. Clearly, this thing's not over. [SF Examiner/Curbed SF]
