I also do not support full public funding. I would like most of this to be funded privately and for public funding to cover the rest. The cost to the taxpayer for covering excess versus footing the full bill will easily be balanced out by benefit derived by the taxpayer.
The taxpayer would benefit much more from repairing and maintaining our bridges and highways.
