Other than puppet Sherrod Brown being involved, this isn't a bad bill. It does not address the long hours and lack of sleep for drivers.

Passenger trains for Ohio would be much better than buses. The infrustructure that trains create is powerful and attracts high paying jobs that cannot be outsourced!

The "infrastructure" busses creates (also known as Highways). Creates many more jobs. Buses are flexible, trains are not. Buses serve hundreds of cities. Trains serve 3 or 4. Busses are here NOW and Paying Taxes. Trains are a dream that will cost more and more tax support forever. Only trains use the tracks taxpayers buy. We ALL use the roads busses run on
