re: BR traffic today was an assraping. When will it be time? - doubleb
They are giving you 85% of 50%, and 27% of something else, and each legislator control over maintenance funds, etc. Ironclad???? No way....

[quote]Next to each project listed is a set of numbers. Those numbers are the money to be allocated to said project. [/quote] I saw that. So tell me, which projects are going initially? Second? Third? When will they start? Why is money not all going to the priority A projects, then B a...

[quote]I posted a link to the mega projects list dumbass[/quote] And you posted a list to the Bill which does not tell you which of the projects are going to be built only that half of the money goes to these projects and that 85% of that 50% is going to category A and B. It doesn't say they are ...

[quote]So...there's that[/quote] I read that, but don't you see they are going to pick and choose from the list. All of priority A is going first, B second and so on. Don't you see only 85% of 50% of the money is guaranteed to be spent on A and B. They might not even pick a BR project if the g...

[quote]But this is your response to my question of how they gain our trust back.[/quote] By demonstrating that they intend to use my tax dollars more efficiently, by cutting out waste, and by not using my tax dollars to reward or punish legislators; but to do what's right for our general welfare....

[quote]That is the definition of being ironclad as to exactly where and how the money is to get used. [/quote] Does this sound as if it's ironclad? "1) Fifty percent of the proceeds shall be dedicated to highway priority program projects classified as capacity projects in accordance with the d...

[quote]The bill was ironclad to the dollar how and where the money was to be spent. [/quote] It's not ironclad to the dollar. Some money is allocated per legislative district. Some money is allocated to projects not on the priority list. Some money can be spent on priority C projects before ...

If the priority is truly based on need then the BR area would have more projects in category A Sherlock. That's what I'm saying, but you have your head so far up DOTD's arse you can't see it....

[quote] You just posted a bunch of city/parish stuff and ended it with a state/fed thing.[/quote] Everyone of the projects I listed includes City-Parish money, or it's about the City-Parish spending federal grants. And so now you have to go yo Council meetings to criticize officials? Why is t...

re: BR traffic today was an assraping. When will it be time? - doubleb
I read your link before I posted and never saw where it said where 59% of the money was going. Your post said 50% was going to the mega projects but what does that mean because the link you provided appears to spend money in less critical areas than around BR. And btw, I guess I am s dumb arse ...

The lottery is almost like a voluntary tax. Sure you can win, but the odds are really bad. The lottery takes resources from citizens, takes dollars from the public for govt. but unlike casinos creates few jobs. Both are gambling, but casinos make more sense....

No, people are upset because our officials don't do their jobs. There's no way the COA tax should have been put on the ballot, there is no way they should have finagled that CATS tax and there is no way we should be building bike paths to L'auberge and giving up a million dollars in BRAVE money a...

[quote]Baton Rouge didn't try at all. Even if they did, the money would have flowed to New Orleans pet projects. Those TIMED projects were set in motion 30-35 years ago.[/quote] That's exactly what happened in 1989, BR got screwed and another reason not to vote for more state taxes. We would ...

Someone they diverted a million dollars of Gustav relief to build bike paths and do other things and they lost a million dollars in BRAVE money because they don't have a need for if, but they raise property taxes to fund corrupt agencies like CATS and the COA. And then they try and shame us for n...

[quote]Yes. Yes it is. It's also accurate. The money for the Audobin bridge was about to be lost so they built the bridge there as opposed to losing the funds[/quote] The bridge was part of the Timed program presented to the voters in 1989. The bridge was approved in the statewide vote and funded...

Where did I blame the local authorities for following the law? I just pointed out how we pay tax dollars that are not used to the best advantage. I realize why we have to do what the Feds demand, but it still doesn't make it right does it?...
