Egregious Earmark of the Week: $100,000 to Corona, Calif., Old City Hall

It takes ‘a few cervezas’ to swallow this down

Stuck into the Transportation-Treasury-HUD appropriations bill (H.R. 3058) for fiscal year 2006, is a pork project Rep. Jeff Flake (R.-Ariz.) would like to spotlight as this week’s egregious earmarks: $100,000 to the town of Corona, California for the renovation of the Old City Hall.

"Maybe it takes a few cervezas before this project starts to look worthy," Flake said.

The House passed the bill with a vote of 392-31 and the Senate sent it through without one vote of opposition. It was signed into law by President Bush on November 30, 2005.
