San Jose, CA
AT&T: The new Southern Pacific. S.P.R.R. had the same power in the State of California 100 years ago; and that power ultimately led to California's initiative process. The voters basically seized legislative power from the legislature (but, after a century of experience, corporations learned how to "AstroTurf" the process in this state).
