On Foreign Ownership of American Roads-and Texas Sovereignty

It is remarkable that the Bush Administration and Secretary Peters see only cash as they push for privatization. They don't understand the sovereignty issue at all. However, their public does. The idea of foreign entities owning parts of our infrastructure is anathema to voters of both political parties. True, promoting solely US investors is a bit more palatable to the voters. Still, the idea is most likely a bad one. Voters approve bond issues to build an infrastructure, which includes mass-transit rail lines. They feel that they own the facilities and that sooner or later the bonds will be paid off, at which time the legislature can determine if they simply should eliminate tolls or continue them for another state-owned facility. The public is correct about its instinct concerning these projects. Foreign investment ought to be prohibited. Perhaps United States investment is tolerable but these days, just as with the construction of automobiles, it is almost impossible to determine if US investment really comes from this country. It would be better to leave well enough alone.
