According to the story, "The economic spending bill now being debated in the Senate would pour hundreds of billions of dollars into the economy. But it wouldn’t do anything to help the transit system in St. Louis, which is in a crisis so grave that it may be forced to sell off many of its buses."  Follow the link above to hear an interview with Les Sterman, executive director of East-West Gateway Council of Governments.
