MPN Blog: Twenty Stimulus Recipients in Missouri Fail to Report on Use of Funds

March 2nd, 2010 by mopns · No Comments

The MPN blog says they’re non partisan, but if you read the spin in their posts, it makes you say yeah right! We’re trying to figure out their angle in their latest post. Are they making the argument we would make that the stimulus bill has been a colossal failure and has resulted in waste? Or, are they saying that the unemployment figures being reported could be better if stimulus dollars recipients would complete their paperwork and send it back in a timely fashion to the bureaucrats?

Twenty recipients of federal stimulus funds in Missouri failed to file required reports documenting the use of the money after the last quarter.

What’s worse is that, according to the White House, only two states had more delinquent filers than Missouri — Texas (22) and Illinois (21).

Sec. 1512 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA, or the stimulus) requires that recipients and sub-recipients of federal funds report on their use quarterly so that agencies can ensure taxpayer’s money was properly and expeditiously outlaid.

The late filers present a bit of a quandary for the would-be enforcers in the White House and Governor’s Office though. Note that in the list below six of the late filers are actually governmental entities. Read more…

    If it adds up to 300K for every job I’ll work for one third of that. All these freakin progressives in the federal, state and local governments make me sick with their socialist agendas. The only way to get the country back on track is abolish affirmative action, welfare, food stamps and the other hand outs to people who never wanted to work in the first place.
