$37 Million of Your Tax Money so Wal-Mart Execs don't sit in Traffic

Buried away in the federal highway bill is $37 million to make live easier for Wal-Mart. It would widen the street providing the main access to Wal-Mart's corporate HQ in Bentonville, Arkansas. The company had asked Rep John Boozman (R-AR) for the street widening. Transportation Committee Chairman Don Young (R-AK) dropped the Wal-Mart road work into the bill the day before the House was scheduled to vote on the massive spending plan. (USAToday)
