Kit Still Bringing Home the Pork!

September 16th, 2009 by MarkTwain · No Comments

Sen. Bond is retiring after this term but he’s still bringing home the pork!

Citizens Against Government Waste today released its preliminary analysis of the Senate version of the fiscal year 2010 Department of Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development (THUD) Appropriations Act. In total, there are 588 projects worth $1.7 billion. This represents a 2.2 percent increase in the number of projects and a 46.7 percent increase in dollar amounts from the fiscal year 2009 version, which had 601 projects totaling $906.2 million. Senate THUD Appropriations Subcommittee Chairwoman Patty Murray (D-Wash.) has 53 projects worth $185.4 million, and Senate THUD Subcommittee Ranking Member Kit Bond (R-Mo.) took home 21 projects worth $30.5 million. Their combined dollar total accounts for 12.6 percent of the funding in the bill.
