  • Good to hear. Let the states/cities be held accountable for the bulk of their infrastructure projects. Maybe they will be more judicious with their overspending and more responsible with short and long term goals, be it better transit, roads, bridges, etc. Bay Area also is home to huge tech firms who should start coughing up their fair share of money to invest in local infrastructure, rather than skate through on tax breaks.
