NY State Pet Projects List

Maybe something near YOUR home!

After much travail, alot of it by Hearst Corporation lawyers who forced the state to comply with the law, the government of New York state made public its list of pork....it may be undigestable. The Senate and the Assembly each get to dole out $85 million (which of course is used to keep junior party membership - 'log-rolling' in politicalspeak - in line and to payback benefactors who of course get paid back alot more in other government programs and regulation) and the Governor gets to dole out a paltry $30 million. Its like the federal government only on (alot) less of a scale. Bon appetit.
