We’ll have more coverage of the meeting later.
There has been one change: the item (#54) to consider a $299-million contract for the purcase of new light rail vehicles from Kinkisharyo International, LLC, has been withdrawn.
Other rail car manufacturers voiced concerns about the contract at a Metro Board committee meeting last week.

“Other rail car manufacturers voiced concerns” — I suppose if I were a rail car manufacturer, I would be “concerned” if somebody else’s rail cars were going to get a $299 million contract instead of mine.
So by withdrawn do you mean the recommendation was scrapped and Metro has to start this whole thing all over again or has the item just been delayed to another meeting in the future? Come on Steve talk to me.
It just means that Board consideration of the contract is being postponed until a later date.
