Council Looks to Congress to Help Citibus

The Lubbock City Council wants Congress to change a law so the city does not have to pay for the cost of operating Citibus.

As NewsChannel 11 told you on Wednesday night, Citibus gets federal money every year, but when Lubbock's population went over 200,000, they lost part of that money. The current law says they can only use part of that money for day to day to costs. So on Thursday, the council decided to ask Congress to change the law so Citibus can use it however they need it. If the law is not changed, the city may have to give Citibus nearly $450,000 to operate in 2004.
