HANFORD — A company that processes dead dairy cows from Kings County has come out publicly against the California high-speed rail project.

Baker Commodities, the company that operates the processing facility east of Hanford, sent a representative last week to a Senate Transportation and Housing Committee hearing in Sacramento to speak in support of SB 985.

The bill, sponsored by state Sen. Doug LaMalfa, R-Richvale, would put the $68 billion project back on the ballot to give voters a second chance to consider it in November. When voters initially OK’d funding in 2008, the cost was estimated at $33 billion.
