Gov. Moonbeam wants his legacy to include building a choo-choo through the dust bowl. It's a parting shot to his union supporters, who will no doubt benefit most from the increasing lucrative contracts that will be handed out.
In the meantime, agriculture, and the people that support it, suffers while the people in control of our water prioritize a fish over humans. Nevermind that agriculture is a huge business for the state and is responsible for much of our export $$'s.
The meddling of the so-called environmentalists never ceases to amaze.....
