Massie: Stop Money for Streetcars, All Transit

How can Washington help foot the bill for a new Brent Spence Bridge and
Western Hills Viaduct?

.

Stop spending money on streetcars, light rail and bike trails, according
to U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie of Northern Kentucky.

.

The Lewis County Republican unveiled a bill Thursday calling for all
transit projects to be stripped from the Highway Trust Fund, which will
become insolvent on May 31 if Congress doesn’t act. That could free up an
additional $10 billion a year to help fix crumbling highways and bridges,
Massie said.

.

“Currently, gas tax revenue is diverted from the federal Highway Trust
Fund for bike paths, sidewalks, mass transit and other local projects,”
Massie said. “But … there is no longer enough money in the Highway Trust
Fund to maintain our nation’s critical highways and bridges while also
funding local projects that have no federal nexus.”

.

Local transit advocates don’t like Massie’s so-called “DRIVE Act.”

.

“For anyone concerned about safety and congestion on our highways, there
is no better dollar spent than a dollar spent on transit,” said
Over-the-Rhine resident Derek Bauman, regional director of All Aboard
Ohio, a statewide transit advocacy group. “Effective transit systems
remove millions of commuters from roadways every day.”

.

Meanwhile, the Obama administration has pushed for the revival of
streetcars as part of a plan to help revive urban centers. Many of those
projects have been the focus of contentious debates, mostly over the costs
and merits of streetcars. Such has been the case in Cincinnati with the
$148 million Downtown streetcar project.

.

The Highway Trust Fund provides between $8 billion and $9 billion annually
for transit projects, and Massie is among several fiscal conservatives in
recent years to call for completely eliminating transit projects from the
fund.

House Passes Bill To Aid Koch Brothers, Deregulate Wall Street

WASHINGTON — The U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday passed a
financial deregulation package that would benefit the Koch brothers and
the nation’s largest banks by a vote of 265-143.

The legislation would significantly weaken elements of the 2010 Dodd-Frank
financial reform law dealing with derivatives — the complex products at
the heart of the 2008 meltdown. Many components of the bill approved
Tuesday had previously passed the House with bipartisan support. However,
Democratic backing had been weakest on the most controversial measure,
which allows U.S. firms to skirt domestic regulations on some derivatives
by conducting trades through offshore affiliates in other major financial
centers.

Republicans were almost uniform in their support, with Rep. Walter Jones
(N.C.) the lone GOP holdout. Democratic opposition was broad, with only 46
Democrats voting in support — a marked change from several recent House
votes on Wall Street deregulation that have drawn substantial backing from
dozens, and in some cases an overwhelming majority, of House Democrats.
The White House issued a formal statement last week saying that it
“strongly opposes” the legislation that passed Tuesday.

The bill includes several separate deregulatory measures sought by the
largest Wall Street banks and the Koch brothers, who control significant
financial and energy derivatives operations. Americans for Financial
Reform, the premier policy analysis organization among bank watchdogs,
advocated strongly against the bill alongside consumer groups and the
AFL-CIO.

The bill also reauthorizes the existence of the primary derivatives
regulator, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. Bank reform
advocates, however, are confident that the agency cannot be shut down,
unless it’s defunded by Congress. The CFTC’s formal authorization expired
in October 2013.

The Democratic Party has been roiled in recent months by internal
divisions over its relationship with Wall Street, with one wing of the
party attempting to cozy up to financiers in pursuit of campaign cash and
another seeking to rein in banking excess.

Republicans on the House Rules Committee had blocked more aggressive
oversight amendments from Waters and Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.),
preventing floor votes on them. Lynch’s proposal would have required
greater scrutiny of high-frequency trading. Waters’ amendment would have
banned anyone who had been convicted of violating securities laws, or who
is the subject of a formal ongoing securities law investigation, from
serving on the CFTC’s advisory committee.

.

Former JPMorgan Managing Director Blythe Masters was named to that
committee early this year, but quickly resigned the post. In April,
reports surfaced that she was being investigated by the FBI over the
bank’s commodity trading operations. The company agreed to pay $410
million last year to settle civil allegations of impropriety in Masters’
division.
