Update: Shadegg responds

The Arizona Republic printed today a response - by John Shadegg - to the article I linked to a few days ago.

The weird thing is that it appears as if the original article was full of complaining about problems that weren't real. According to Shadegg Arizona still gets the same amount of money; without the "earmark" the money goes directly to ADOT - rather than to the City of Phoenix who would've turned the money over to ADOT anyway.

Thus this wasn't about turning down extra money for Arizona - the earmark would've come out of Arizona's previously set allocation - but instead about letting ADOT - rather than Congress - decide what to do with the money.
