The article comments on political developments in the U.S. The first major break-through of public power advocates occurred in the new Public Works Appropriation bill, slipped in quietly by the Senate. Though the initial sums are relatively small, they will amount to hundreds of millions by completion. In an another news, in many state legislatures apportionment is 30 years behind the times, giving dominating local power to the rural areas which are predominantly conservative. That is one of the key factors in the U.S. politics today, rarely understood by laymen.
