There is no clear or easy plan on how to plug the $3.577 billion deficit as the price tag to build the 20-mile, 21-station project continues to rise.

1. I recommend lots of jail time for fraud if provable. it's been under construction for 10 years and

as of now it is maybe half way done and not one inch of it is being run for public use. There are 4 more miles to go and it's gonna take TEN frigging years to go that 4 miles. so ten yrs may end up being 20. there's a ton of corruption in Hawaii. I say fire everyone associated with it and bring in off-island people who know how to get things done
