I don't believe I wrote anything about whether one was born there of moved there (unless you take my move "back" to mean that.) Many people, when they grow up and figure out the costs of where they live, move to cheaper places. Many, when they grow up, decide they like the life style they are used to and choose to remain. It is their choice, all I ask is that they, not I, pay for it.
Two differences between bridges: 1) after they are built, ferries require continuous expensive people to operate them; bridges have the actual users providing the labor; 2) as described by this bill, people who use ferries are not paying the fuel taxes used to build, maintain, and operate them; bridge users are, plus they have to pay for the ferry users.
