Thank God for John Larson. All that talk about his high leadership position in the House is complete garbage, the guy does nothing for us.

The Connecticut Department of Transportation applied for $329 million for 13 separate projects and 10 local jurisdictions applied for an additional $301 million, said Kevin Nursick, spokesman for the CTDOT.

A U.S. Department of Transportation press release said they were "flooded" with $60 billion in requests, nearly 40 times the amount of grant money available.

connecticut was up against some stiff competition for these funds, so it does not surprise me we didn't get anything.

Let's remember that all the Congressional Democrats promised that by supporting Obama, money would flow into our "blue state".
