A few years ago there was an earthquake in Northridge California.
Completely pancaked three bridges.  Govenor declared an emergency so
that the usual inefficient set asides were suspended.  The company
awarded the contract agreed to the usual penalty for late completion
about 6 months but also a reward for early completion.  Light trucks
were brought in by this private company and work proceeded 24/7 and
finished in three months.  All because government got out of the way.

BTW the liberals wanted him to give back the bonus because it equaled
the costs of repair because it was 90 days exactly to completion leaving
90 days bonus.
