$20 million in federal dollars allocated to private developer for SF Bay ferry service, both of the local representatives say they didn't do it, all of the local transit services say that it's impractical and the proposed route has too many environmental concerns, fingers are pointed at Don Young (R-AK) and James Inhofe (R-OK). So if you're a constituent of either of those politicians, no that they're not just bringing tons of "PORC" ("Projects of Regional Concern") to their own districts (Don Young is legendary in these circles, including $238 million for a bridge to serve a town of 8,000 which is already served by a 10 minute ferry), they're dishing it out elsewhere.
