In-text Citations for Footnotes

My teacher told us that we were able to use the footnotes with the same source but i am wondering if it is correct to site several consecutive sentences with the same source at the end of each sentence.

One policy solution to the fear of Global Warming is the California Clean Air and Transportation Act of 1990. California Proposition 116 enacted the act when it was approved on the June 5th, 1990 ballot. The Clean Air and Transportation Act of 1990 entitled $1.99 billion dollars for “specific projects, purposes, and geographic jurisdictions, primarily for passenger rail capital projects.” 1.852 billion dollars of the 1.99 billion dollars was authorized to be spent on the construction of rail terminals, stations and rights-of-way (or pathways made specifically for rail transportation purposes). 73 million dollars was set aside to purchase transits with special functions for the disabled in 28 non urban cities with no possession of any rail projects. 20 million dollars was designated for the improvement of bicycle projects to improve the safety and convenience of bicycle commuters. 30 million dollars went to the construction and improvement of the water-borne ferry programs of the City of Vallejo. For an project to obtain some of these funds they would have to be authorized by Commission when they approve the project applications to be eligible.

If your own retelling of the facts, one citation would be sufficient. Be sure to check with the person "in charge" for style use (MLA, APA).
"73 million" should be written seventy-three million, as other similar,
