Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Transportation news you missed last week while you were freezing, but is it a real improvement?

Not saying whether or not I think this particular
news about
Transportation Sec. Ray LaHood's
apparent change in policy is good or bad,
true or false, as it relates to what will happen
in Florida, esp. High-Speed Rail or commuter
rail funding, et al, but I thought I'd share it with
you
all after I found it while looking for something
else
this morning.
For a partisan website, it's actually put together quite well.

The criteria determine which projects get funded under the Federal Transit Administration's New Starts and Small Starts programs.
