Coburn criticizes bike spending out of highway fund
From The Daily Oklahoman:
Coburn said today, “Congress is about to pass another bailout of the highway trust fund because we have refused to make wise choices about transportation spending … Congress has wasted billions of dollars on low-priority projects like bike paths while bridges are in disrepair.”
On the other hand, Marilyn from Seminole comments:
It makes good sense to develop safe bike paths in the larger cities. Just a year ago we saw on the OKC tv stations that more people were biking to work when gas was $4 a gallon. So, just because it has dropped down again we should not get prepared for the inevitable?
