Funding Katrina relief and reconstruction

Filed under: — George @ 8:49 am

The solution is simple: repeal the Highway Bill and apply as much as needed of the approximately $290 billion saving to the Federal Government funded portion of relief and reconstruction. The US can easily survive an additional year without the projects included in the Highway boondoggle. A bonus of postponing Highway funding would be the opportunity to reconsider all that is included and possibly eliminate the most wasteful and worthless elements.

An ancillary benefit of postponing spending on the Highway boondoggle would be lessened competition for the reconstruction required Civil Engineering and construction resources.
