Let's just add to the bill our kids will need to pay. How many new jobs will this project create?

Let me get this straight. We cannot pay our teachers nor keep our schools going but Barack wants to map the floor of the bay?

This is indeed a worthy project. Not only will it create jobs for specialists but the information is invaluable. Since I love to deep sea fish, I hope they will uncover information re: where the fish hand out!

Signed,

Cholo

These surveys need to be done periodically because the bay's floor changes continously. The info will be mainly for shipping lanes to avoid another oil spill or worse like last year. Then it pays for itself.

Hopefully the plan provides to award the contract to a US company! Wish the car plan had done likewise!
