Maybe this process really works???

Maybe the $30Billion that was sought in the Baker Bill was really overkill, and the new $10Billion number is more reasonable for everybody.

Regardless of the specifics, you throw $10Billion dollars (this latest 4.2 + the 6 that has already been approved in block grant money) into this metropolitan area, and there is going to be a construction boom like you have never seen before. This is very good news for our region, we just need to make sure we don't screw up the implementation...

For the record, the current Blanco plan doesn't seem to be that far off from my positioin three days after the storm. Then, my feeling was that at a minimum the federal government should give every household in the region $100,000 to do with as they please, whether that be rebuild, pay off the mortgage and start over, leave it as a ruin, etc. The $150,000 number is small or large relative to one's financial standing, but it's a start and nothing to sneeze at.
