Re: “Who killed the Durham-Orange County light-rail project?

This quote below is pretty much all that needs to be said on the matter. This is not the way that important infrastructure decisions should be decided. This is a project we voted for - and which many of us believe will be an important contribution to a livable, cohesive Triangle as it grows. I understand there will be NIMBY concerns around any project of this size—and I sympathize—but that doesn't mean you should get to game the system.

"The provision had never been brought up for any kind of public debate, and not a single House or Senate Republican claimed credit for inserting it into the budget. It just appeared at the last minute, out of nowhere, and became law.None of the local legislators representing the districts through which the light-rail project would pass were notified about the $500,000 cap during the backroom negotiations that produced the budget."
