John Carney on Technology

 

 


New investments on roads, transit, high-speed internet

With your help, we've invested $10 million in a new Transportation Infrastructure Fund. Delawareans expect to be able to get to and from work quickly and safely. That's why we're investing $4.5 billion over the next six years to modernize our roads, bridges, and public transit.

New investments in our technology infrastructure have already brought high-speed internet to the areas around Laurel, Seaford and Bridgeville--where service was spotty or nonexistent.

Invest $3 billion in transportation infrastructure

We continue to make historic investments in our infrastructure--with over $3 billion to upgrade our transportation system through 2025. That means less traffic, safer bridges, and more pedestrian friendly streets. This year I'm proposing to create a new Transportation Infrastructure Investment Fund that would help the state to react quickly to important economic development projects. We're going to invest $10 million in this new fund.

Opponent's Argument for voting No:
Reference: Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act; Bill H.R.624 ; vote number 13-HV117 on Apr 18, 2013

Voted NO on terminating funding for National Public Radio.

    Congressional Summary: To prohibit Federal funding of National Public Radio and the use of Federal funds to acquire radio content, including:
  1. broadcasting, transmitting, and programming over noncommercial educational radio broadcast Corporation for Public Broadcasting was created in 1967. Today, we have multiple listening choices; NPR [has become an] absurd anachronism. It is time to move forward and to let National Public Radio spread its wings and support itself.

    Opponent's Argument for voting No:
    [Rep. Waxman, D-CA]: This bill will cripple National Public Radio, public radio stations, and programming that is vital to over 27 million Americans. We are now voting to deny the public access to one of our Nation's most credible sources of news coverage. This bill does not save a penny. This legislation does not serve any fiscal purpose, but it does serve an ugly ideological one. This legislation is not about reforming NPR. It is about punishing NPR. It is vindictive, it is mean-spirited, it is going to hit the smallest stations in rural areas particularly hard. Public radio is indispensable for access to news that's hard to get, especially where broadband service is limited.
