High Speed Rail Earmarks

This is coming a few years too late for Ben and Erika, but John Dingell just announced some big pork project - uh, I mean, $150 Million for high speed rail between Detroit and Kalamazoo. But if it improves the economy, why not?

Howard Learner, of the Environmental Law & Policy Center (based in Chicago) and a U of M Law Adjunct Professor, has also supported the bill. So maybe I'm being too cynical.

  1. Pork?! Really G$? Everyone is getting a cut of the high speed rail cake these days, California, Illinois, even Iowa.
