Houston development sector's push to build farther out from employment centers helped leverage stimulus money from an Obama administration that has preached the end of suburban sprawl. The money will build a toll road to increase long-distance commutes to and from Houston and mar a rural prairie-land environment. Obama can only preach the end of sprawl, because the states determine how federal stimulus money will be spent. If they practice sprawl, then sprawl it is.
