I'm fine with the bill, though it should be in the Pacific and not in Colorado Tongue

Here's an amendment:

I'm fine with the amendment. I wouldn't be for reimbursing the businesses under normal circumstances, but since we have a crisis now, I can live with it.

As I said before think like a business owner. Why would a transport company want to pickup students, when they cant charge them? Any smart business man would save those seats for paying customers.

Yeah, I get your point. You're right. So now let's get this bill passed swiftly, so we can draw our attention fully to the stimulus money.

Since a majority are already in favor of the amendment, let's vote on the final bill.

That fine is a little steep, and I'm sorry for not commenting on this one - it slipped by. Would a quick rewrite be acceptable? I want to adjust some numbers.

Is $4,000 ok?

I'd offer this rewrite:

I just googled this, and it isn't as radical as I had initially feared. There are cities that basically have this or something very much like it - either free weekday transit for Uni students or else steeply reduced weekday transit. So yeah, that looks good, but let me get back this afternoon.

Okay, I want it to read "weekday transit during normal school hours" or something to that effect. But there's got to be a better way to handle reimbursement. Maybe not, IDK.

Why just weekday transit? It's not that expensive for them, and if we reimburse them 50%, I think it's ok.
