This is exactly what happens when government programs are instituted. These things CANNOT stand on their own, hence expansion is always needed to support the parasite. This is why we have city, county and state government. The MetCouncil, like all gvmt programs, starts out with a noble goal, uniting infrastructure needs between Mpls and St. Paul. And now look. a 2040 vision to essentially take control of all inner AND outer ring suburbs. Then what? a 2060 vision to control all transportation needs for the state? This is garbage. The MetCouncil needs to be abolished. They've done their job, now go away.
