Why would you go and dig for an older article when there are plenty of newer ones available? Like this one: Pence Wants Public-Private Partnerships To Fund Rest Of I-69 | News - Indiana Public Media

Whats to be jealous about? We don't have to be on 35 to be booming. What metro gained the most last decade? Spank you very much

It very well may take a special spending bill attached to some Federal budget proposal. Of course some politicians in our state will probably be fighting tooth and nail to defeat any such bill. I wonder where they will be from?

Even Rick Perry has asked for more funds for 69 recently. If the Feds wanna start spending on infrastructure, 69 wil be one of the top projects imo. The next cross country interstate connecting a populated center in Mexico with a populated center in Canada and spurring growth in US cities along its route. Some of these small towns are banking on it.

Its because they are scared. Houston is improving in every way and they are insecure about that.
Its like the Olympics committee visits, they try and screw us to look better

Rick Perry will soon be out of office.

Funds can still be sent. Hopefully when Wendy Davis becomes our next governor, she won't show envy like her fellow DFWers and continue asking the feds for 69 funds. We want jobs created right?

69 will benefit east Texas the most. This corridor should have been in place ages ago.

Plus 35 is too crowded. Some relief is needed. I Still think the route should include a bypass/alternate route instead of straight through the loop.

And Gregg Abbott will be in, so what ? Even if the Democrats do win (which is doubtful) the economic interest of the state will trump any regional loyalty some Governor may have. I mean where is Perry from? Not Houston.....

Lol Greg Abott is from Whicita Falls. I doubt he will give a rats about the I 69 project being a native North Texan.
