Well, the ultimate reason we have lousy roads is a car culture that is incredibly wasteful and virtually impossible to maintain.
To show how ingrained this culture is, we have the spectacle of the local progressive paper trumpeting the "vital" need to spend 100's of millions more on it. And what are we buying? Cars and trucks for police and fire as well as the roads themselves.
All this in order to cross increasingly long miles of sprawl which looks like everywhere else: mostly covered with asphalt for cars to drive and park.
Ah, the old red tape parade. No wonder most people can't stand environmentalists.
Running on higher taxes and more welfare plus dollars for schools with no plan for how that improves education and no plan to curb illegal immigration.
This is probably not a winning platform in Arizona.
As a less-than-wealthy parent who, nevertheless, would like to send my kids to decent schools, please accept my thanks for making me aware of this program.
Yeah, Grijalva's doing it for the environment. Ha, ha, ha. That's a good one.
How come the existing hundreds of miles of border wall didn't "divide and destroy the incredible communities and wild landscapes along the border" Mr. Suckling?
Massive development due to growth from illegal immigration does far more to destroy the environment than some little wall in the desert.
This isn't about the environment.
The election is over, BS talking points can be shelved for another 4 years.
"students at BASIS aren't representative of Arizona's population" - you mean it's not 50% children of illegal immigrants?
