to me this reeks of wanting to look like you are Doing Something while passing all the actual work and responsibility onto someone else. Keep the narrative on institutional incompetence rather than the state’s neglectPosting reddit because I'm not going to remake the twitter post myself. Rep. William Straus is now suggesting the FTA take over the whole thing.
I'll be honestly I don't really follow the guy, but I do remember the last time I saw his name on this board, he was called a gaslighter with a context of suggesting to end the MB TA and absorb it into MassDOT. Fed Takeover or State takeover, I'm not sure if he's trying to make fake political bluffs, make it someone else problems, or genuinely see it as solutions.
More critically, I don't know what would actually work to fix it. My gut says the Feds are probably best (Though painful still)
