McAdams chose slightly stronger words in his response. "Let me be clear: over my dead body," he said.
Miller said he "absolutely" supports the building of a road out of Juneau, but then turned the argument towards regulatory burdens, indicating that the federal government was the main roadblock to the project.
McAdams said that improving transportation in Southeast is imperative, and that funding needs to be secured for any projects that arise. "I'm a big marine highway transportation guy," he said.
McAdams said that improving transportation in Southeast is imperative, and that funding needs to be secured for any projects that arise.

These are non-constitutionally mandated appropriations that we're talking about."
Citing the "Bridge to Nowhere", McAdams said, "There was a time in this country when the Transcontinental Railroad was a railroad to nowhere, there was a time in this country when the Hoover Dam was a dam for no one," he said.
"The first order of business needs to be to connect Southeast Alaska through earmarks," he concluded.
