The Center for Defense Information found money for things like:
- $500,000 to study wind energy in North & South Dakota
- $20 million for a Montana fish hatchery
- $26 million to move nuclear materials from New Mexico to Nevada
- $4 million for the Tygart Watershed Project in West Virginia
Congress has passed four emergency war spending bills so far -- totalling $200 billion. The one in April was the first to have non-war related items included.
Congress members know that these emergency bills will pass. So they make a good place to hide money for other projects. (Big News Network)
