For the record, I do not think that the plans for the monorail should be included in this stimulus plan. I don't think this idea is something that should be funded by federal tax dollars. I was just aware of it's existence and I think it would be a really awesome thing...IF it is funded PRIVATELY.
Or, at the very least, if tax payers in those cities want to vote on if they should give funds to the project, that should be their decision.
BUT.. anybody who has spent time in the southwest knows how cool it would be to have a light rail connecting Phoenix, L.A., and Vegas all together...
that is crazy
