    In Long Beach, Calif., a protracted debate is taking place over the expansion of a major freeway that carries goods from the port of that city into the rest of the state. Opponents say an expanded freeway will damage the air quality for residents who live alongside the freeway, including the Cambodian community there. State officials say an expansion is necessary to update the old freeway and improve the flow of goods. In August, a public hearing was held on the issue. Among the hundreds of Long Beach residents there to object to the project was a handful of Cambodians. (Brian Calvert, Long Beach)
