St. Paul Councilman Calls Streetcar Proposal "Obscene"

(St. Paul, MN) -- "Obscene" is how one St. Paul City Council member is describing a proposed 250-million dollar streetcar in the city. Dan Bostrom told KSTP-TV that giving every business along the corridor where the streetcar would run a million dollars each "would generate more economic development." A public hearing on the idea is set for January 24. No environmental or engineering studies have yet been done.
