Doug Johnson on Cities Selling Stimulus Funds in Pasadena Star-News

In a recent article in the Pasadena Star-News on the subject of cities in Los Angeles County selling stimulus funds for less restrictive funds, Doug Johnson is quoted as criticizing the wheeling and dealing between cities and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s approval of such transactions:

The MTA’s authorization of such swaps amounts to a “cash giveaway out the back door,” said Doug Johnson of the Rose Institute.

“The MTA pleads they have no money for transportation projects, and now they’re just giving cash away and letting the cities auction it off to each other regardless of priority or project or what,” Johnson said. “I’m just stunned and appalled.”
