Hello, Keon Morris 1, welcome to the discussion. I think you might be referring to the part of the captial projects fund that assists LIRR and establishes new express rates from points west of the Hudson into the city. The Rationale is that all areas for which MTA is responsible or who will otherwise be affected by the bill should, in return, get some revenue for improving and expanding transportation amenities.

Keeping in mind that any alternatives must attempt to accomplish what the entire bill attempts to accomplish (e.g., reduced traffic congestion, more revenue for transportation, improved access to transit, etc.), would you be able to offer a reasonable alternative for suburban capital projects?
