It's not a $300 million project. It started out at $220 million and the projection now is almost $400 million. How does something get that far out of bounds before people notice? Answer= It doesn't. Such large projects have constant reporting. Nobody seemed to care about the cost overages until the maximum exceeded all the money that could be milked from the system. Now Ficano says he can't say whether it's over budget or not. This guy continues to lie about almost everything. There needs to be a way to remove politicians for gross stupidity.
