E-M:/ Does prop 2 promote sprawl?



Could the supporters of Prop. 2 please respond to this assertion in the Detroit News editorial 
opposing the sewer bond issue?

"Whatever the rationale for helping local municipal authorities, there is none for subsidizing private individuals. Yet about 10 percent of the bond money is slated to, among other things, help rural homeowners fix leaky septic systems. Underwriting homeowners who choose to locate in remote areas would encourage the movement out of core cities and create sprawl."

Thanks.
