Answer preview

The questions posed have not been adequately addressed. Most of the issues raised are still present today. The federal, local, and state governments still engage in crossover arrangements to get projects done, and this is still confusing citizens. The focus on welfare programs at the expense of development is still an issue that states and local governments have to address.
