Actually, I 'd like an explanation as to why this was left in bill written last year, that supposedly was to be gone over line by line. (By the way, the bill was written 9 months before a federal judge ruled in favor of the tribe.)
I really thought we were done screwing over the American Indians.
"The project has been studied and delayed over and over again for 20 years. Meantime, one of the world's great treasures continues to die," said Dan McLaughlin, a spokesman for Sen. Bill Nelson, Florida Democrat. "The National Academy of Sciences, in a report to Congress, says the bridge is needed to allow water north of the road to flow south into the Everglades. Senator Nelson supports it. It's absolutely essential to restoring the 'Glades. No bridge - no water flow. No water - no Everglades."
Heather, looks like at least on Democrat support the "bridge" (Nelson)and perhaps one Republican opposes it (at least per the newsmax article posted above). If Democrats want it, most likely~they shall prevail.
