$ 80'000'000 a year spent on canals

Albany, NY

#1 Feb 22, 2013
In 1992 the canals were dumped on the thruway from the state . Since then the thruway has spent 1.6 billion since then .Maby the state should contribute some money for those expences .So the thruway does not have to lay 150 employes off .Is it fair the these employes should suffer the cuts ? Does the traveling patrons on the thruway realize some of their money funds the canals ? If the state took back the canals the thruway would have a good start on savings ... Glenn
