Re: Clueless Sailors?

I worked as an engineer for DOT for 5 years and I always knew the funding source of my upcoming projects. Most of your highways are funded by the feds. In fact state, county and even local roads get a huge percentage of funding from the feds. Therefore it is mostly income tax, paid for by almost all of us. And the local maintenance gets paid from property taxes as well.
