Cartoon Tuesday: Hocus Pocus

magic - Winter 2014 (1)
The good news is, we’re not alone, it’s not just advocates that are frustrated with the slow pace of transportation funding reauthorization in Washington, D.C. Engineers, advocates, and professionals from across the spectrum are just as nervous.

With the Federal Transportation Trust Fund set to run dry at the end of August and the Transportation funding bill to expire a month later, the above comic offers another funding strategy for DOT’s in the next fiscal year. The fiscal year begins today.

With this comic, we’re rebooting the popular Cartoon Tuesday comic series that was popular in Streetsblog’s early days. The series likely won’t be weekly, but will feature original or licensed work when we can. If you have some you’d like to share with us, drop us a line at damien@streetsblog.org.

For more hard news on the state of reauthorization of the federal transportation funding bill, make sure to read Streetsblog USA. The above comic first appeared in the newsletter of Miceli Infrastructure Consulting earlier this year.
