We must do whatever it takes to preserve this economic paradise we call "the beach, the marsh, the coast and the lowcountry." It is made of gold.
TRUMP: Well, I think these people always hit me with eminent domain, and frankly, I'm not in love with eminent domain. But eminent domain is something you need very strongly. When Jeb Bush said, "You used eminent domain privately for a parking lot." It wasn't for a parking lot. The state of New Jersey went to build a very large tower that was going to employ thousands of people--a big job in terms of economic development. I got hit very hard: it's private, it's private eminent domain. You understand that [Jeb and George Bush] took over a stadium in Texas, and they used private eminent domain.
BUSH: You should not use eminent domain for private purposes. A baseball stadium or a parking lot.is very different. All of that is proper use of eminent domain. Not to take an elderly woman's home to build a parking lot so that high-rollers can come from New York City to build casinos in Atlantic City.
BUSH: There is all sorts of intrigue about where I disagree with my brother, there would be one right there. You should not use eminent domain for private purposes. A baseball stadium or a parking lot.is very different. Transmission lines, pipe lines, bridges, and highways. All of that is proper use of eminent domain. Not to take an elderly woman's home to build a parking lot so that high-rollers can come from New York City to build casinos in Atlantic City.
A trade publication, Fleet Owner, tallied the costs: "About $1,800 to $3,000 was added to the base cost of a Class 8 truck [any vehicle above 33,000lb GVWR] in 2002 to meet the first round of emissions regulations. For 2007, an extra $5,000 to $10,000 got tacked on." By 2010, that meant roughly $13,500 to $23,000 extra per truck to satisfy the bureaucrats.
As a result of the new rules, fleet maintenance costs increased an extra $367 on average per truck, per year. And that's when the truck was new.
