Egregious Earmark of the Week: $100,000 to Fix Orange Show Stadium
Rep. Jeff Flake (R.-Ariz.) has spotted this week’s egregious earmark buried in the Transportation-Treasury-HUD appropriations bill (H.R. 3058) for fiscal year 2006.
The noteworthy pork project comes to the grand total of $100,000 allotted to the city of San Bernardino, Calif., for making renovations to the National Orange Show Stadium.
"When is Congress going to have the juice to say ‘no’ to squeezing taxpayers?" said Flake.
