  • BayAreaObserver says Back in June, the Brown administration announced that it would carve out more than $1 billion in expected cap-and-trade revenue from the budget discussion because lawmakers couldn’t agree on how to spend the money. As lawmakers quarreled and attempted to direct funds into their individual districts, funding proposals included everything from road repairs to mosquito research. But as the dust cleared after last Friday’s legislative deadline, $969 million in cap-and-trade remained unspent. California law stipulates that cap-and-trade funding must be spent on projects that reduce pollution. Some funding ideas put forward by lawmakers that never moved forward – such as using cap-and-trade dollars for road repairs – were “dubious at best” because the clean-air benefit is not clear, said O’Connor. Republicans in the Assembly disagree, arguing that improving roads would decrease traffic, which would cut down on fumes caused by idling cars. In a countercharge, the GOP claimed that Democrats are guilty of using the money as a slush fund to pay for pet projects that have little to do with the environment.

  • FortWayne says Some people need a college to teach them what to do, some like to figure it out on their own. Folks have the right to go their own way. Because America is a free nation! Back in the days information was hard to come by, college was a requirement, it was harder to be self taught. It isn't as much anymore these days when everything is on the internet. We have more options today, and colleges have no business charging premium for teaching something that can be learned in 5 minutes searching google. Folks, don't waste your time on liberal arts degrees, those are for people who don't need money. If you need a job to eat and to keep a roof over your head, pick something practical in your life....
