Tom McClintock on Technology

2004 former Republican Challenger CA Governor


Prop 53 is a good start-increase infrastructure spending

The importance of our infrastructure has been completely overlooked since 1974. If you go back to the last year of the Brown administration, a period when we were building highways faster than Detroit was building cars. We were bringing down the state water project to provide for that generation's water needs. We had the finest university system in the country. We were providing a free university education to every Californian who wanted one. We had one of the finest public school systems in the country. Our hydroelectric dams were producing power. Proposition 53 is a very important start, but we have got to go a lot further.

My vision involves a new era of highway construction, dedicating our highway taxes once again for our highways, water construction, electrical plants. Hydroelectric dams [from the 1970s] are producing electricity to half a cent a kilowatt hour. That's $30 a year for an average family. We've got to restore that dedication to our public works.
