The legislation is supposed to be passed by the senate (members who hold the purse strings) so to speak, is over 2,000 pages in length.
If any member here can get a link or a copy of it, I'd like to see what's in it for red and blue states. Which will get the lion's share?
I'd like to know what is in the bill because earlier they were saying it'll provide free internet service nationwide, I think that's a pipe dream. Yeah, there is technology these days for radio traffic, they call this technology repeaters, a radio signal is sent to a tower, then the signal bounces from one tower to another, repeating the original signal, can this be done with wifi?
Funds for roads and bridges, funds for this and that. I imagine that about 70% of our bridges in the USA are structurally deficient. Meaning they could fail at any time, without warning.
I'm thinking some of this government money will be misspent, or money will go down a rabbit hole somewhere.
CREDIT CNN: The deal would also invest $66 billion in passenger and freight rail, according to the bill text.
Okay, so freight trains will receive federal dollars. Why? Freight lines, like the union pacific are already getting federal money. The UP transports tons and tons of coal from the west, and is getting top dollar for that, yet their rails are in a state of disrepair.
