The Case in Favor of a $3 Million Turtle Tunnel
Republicans in Congress can complain all they want about how some federal stimulus funds are being spent on so-called frivolous projects, but the Lake Jackson Ecopassage in Florida is not one of them, according to supporters. The project is a $3 million attempt to build a tunnel so that wildlife, mainly thousands of turtles, can safely cross Highway 27 near Tallahassee. It meets the “shovel ready” requisite that President Barack Obama wants for stimulus projects, thanks to the Florida Department of Transportation okaying the project and a private donor purchasing the land needed for a right-of-way.
