More on the Coalfield Expressway
Kathy Still has this report in the BHC today. Now that the coal companies have given this project a shot of life as I posted here, Rick Boucher is there to grab some press. His only mention was at the end of Still's article
More than $100 million in federal highway money could be made available for the project, U.S. Rep. Rick Boucher, D-9th, said.
That did not take long huh. Look for Boucher to grandstand when in fact he should of had the money already secured. This is not a new project and we should thank the state and the coal companies for the deal they have put together. As far as I can tell, Boucher played no part in this deal. I look for a press conference and mailer soon with Boucher taking credit. Hey Rick! Get us the money!
