  1. what does this mean for the Eastside Loop? Or is it funded from something else?

    It’s certainly not funded by name (no transit projects were).

    But I think we might be eligible under the ‘discretionary grants’. Presumably we’ll be pitching Secretary LaHood on this.

  2. Wow it’s amazing how congress works. I love how Senate and house both had zero on one item then settle for a dollar amount in the millions or billions

    By the way I’m new on here.
