Watch Rep. Mark Olson Promote His Silly PRT Boondoggle

Go to the House Television Archives on the House website.

House floor session - after recess
Wednesday, April 12 2006

Or if you want to go there directly, click here.

Olson tries to amend HF2959 (Dorman) Omnibus Capital Investment bill... he fails three times. The last amendment is the PRT amendment- A27.

It's about 1 hour and 38 minutes into the proceedings.

Olson looks pathetic as he pushes Personal Rapid Transit. Olson's voice rises in pitch to a nervous falsetto as he trots out all the old tired gadgetbahn selling points. He mentions the University. He rails against Parsons Brinkerhoff... the representatives heard all of that before. Representive Hausman says she's heard it all twenty years ago. Olson's PRT amendment is voted down 26 to 107.

I hope the voters of 16b watch Olson make a perfect fool of himself.
