from New Urban Network: Dig, baby, dig

Dig, baby, dig by Charles Marohn

When will States stop shooting up federal money for infrastructure? Why not turn yourself into a powerful, desirable State and not have to answer to the federal gov’t? The feds will not help States maintain anything, so why not cut them out as much as possible?
-Lauren

Our systems for funding new infrastructure are stuck in the 1950’s. Our systems for funding maintenance of existing infrastructure are not serious. Combined, these approaches create outcomes that can’t be justified by people considering themselves rational, let alone great.
