E.S. Gaffney, good points.
Not only is Mufi trying to spend money we don't have before required environmental assurances are a matter of record (so as to avoid another Super Ferry style fiasco and waste of tax-payer monies), BUT also spending our limited money PRESUMING the feds are going to kick in 5.1 BILLION DOLLARS the fed do not have.
Bleed us tax-payers.
Spend as much up front HOPING the feds kick in.
But if the feds do not fall for the 5.1 BILLION DOLLAR con job, then simply loot our treasury, enriching his friends while enjoying inarticulate and hard to trace forms of kickbacks and favors.
Still, your point is well taken.
Mufi has the cart before the horse in so many ways.

Representatives help stop violence against women:
Thanks to Representatives Abercrombie and Hirono who voted this week in support of legislation that will help the U.S. Government better stop violence against women. According to the United Nations Development Fund for Women, one in three women will experience violence in her lifetime. Women are subjected to rape, domestic violence, acid burning, dowry deaths, human trafficking and a myriad of other human rights violations. Legislation passed by the House on Wednesday by a vote of 235 to 187 will help permanently establish an Office for Global Women's Issues at the Department of State, critical to coordinating the US government's efforts to fight violence against women. The office will better direct taxpayer dollars into programs that implement best practices, and are shown to be effective in stemming violence and holding perpetrators accountable. I appreciate our elected officials efforts to combat this scourge and to stand for human rights.

The FBI has jailed crooks in public office in Chicago including many council men and even the governor. Let's just hope that the FBI does what they did in Chicago here in Oahu.
