Muni Fail

Federal scrutiny could threaten funding for the Central Subway boondoggle.  A recent letter from a top Obama administration transportation official obtained bySF Weekly suggests to critics that the ground-breaking ceremony may have been premature. In order for Muni to obtain $942 million in federal funding essential to the project's completion, the Federal Transportation Administration has demanded that San Francisco prove it can come up with an extra $164 million in local and state funds, and — harder still — prove that the subway won't screw up the rest of San Francisco's bus and light-rail network.
