Will legislature continue pork barrel?

Posted By on Tue, Feb 22, 2011 at 4:03 PM

Fascinating question: Will all the budget hawks and tax cutters in the 2011 General Assembly REALLY insist on a General Improvement Fund (local legislative pork barrel) at this legislative session?

The talk here is of $30 million worth. It is not the year for rodeo arenas and garden club projects when pay raises have been withheld, roads are potholed, prisons are bulging and medical needs are soaring.

How about some legislator start a no-pork roundrobin?
