Rep. Tom DeLay has decided that he doesn't fanatically oppose commuter rail after all. He now supports extended the Metro light rail line out into the lower Fort Bend towns "if the residents want it".
Mighty decent of you, big guy. Of course, the mayors of Sugar Land and Missouri City have been supportive of a rail line for some time now, even back before you killed Houston's federal funds for the Metro line.
You don't suppose the fact that the local GOP was ordered to allow Michael Fjetland's name on the primary ballot had anything to do with this, do you? Nah.
UPDATE: Thanks to Larry for showing me how to fix the broken post. It's gone now.Posted by Charles Kuffner on February 09, 2002 to Elsewhere in Houston | TrackBack
