Busway battle not over yet

Though U.S. Rep. John Larson made his position clear -- favoring the busway -- critics of the $573 million project still hope to sway a skeptical legislature in Hartford.
For those who'd like to read more, here is a PDF containing the Central Connecticut Chambers of Commerce letter to Larson and the congressman's own letter to the Federal Transit Administration. And here is the response from the FTA's administrator.
So the battlefield moves to the Capitol, where rail backers hope to convince enough lawmakers to block the required bonding to complete the busway's financing.

Rail is dead.
But welfare to the urban dwellers and the big contractors who line the pockets of the politicians in power are all alive partially thanks to John Larson and RINO Tim Stewart.
