“Citizens should recognize that the 2005 transportation bill is more expensive, in inflation-adjusted dollars, than the Marshall Plan and interstate highway system combined,” said Michael Needham ’04, chief of staff at the Heritage Foundation and former Record editor in chief. “And none of the projects contained within it are as urgent as those two priorities, nor as spending to rebuild after Katrina.”
