Otto: As rail goes, Florida seems to be on a train to nowhere

Steve Otto There was a story this week that Amtrak was considering cutting a 600-mile stretch from its Southwest Chief that runs from Chicago to Los Angeles. The move would eliminate service to a dozen or more towns in Kansas, Colorado and New Mexico. Amtrak might reconsider if those four states cough up $4 million a year for the next 10 years to upgrade track and services.

Annoyed Nugent: Jobs bill way overdue

Posted Mar 27, 2012 by Tom Jackson

Updated Mar 27, 2012 at 05:36 PM

The mood of Congressman Rich Nugent (R-Brooksville) reflects relief, not joy, following Tuesday’s final passage of the so-called JOBS Act.

“It’s about time.  Months ago, the House passed, in a series of near-unanimous votes, a set of bills designed to help small businesses raise private capital.  The Senate never debated them, never voted to amend them, never sent them to the President’s desk. It took the House passing them twice to persuade the Senate to act.  I suppose it’s better late than never, but for the millions of families out there who are desperately looking for action from Washington, this should have been done months ago.

“This is the way the process is supposed to work – we find bipartisan solutions, pass them, work out the differences between the House and Senate, and send it to the President.  If it can work here, however late it may be, it ought to be able to work on the other major challenges facing OUR country.”
