Pelosi’s mouse slated for $30M slice of cheese
Other spending questioned by Republicans — but not considered on the chopping block — are $275 million for flood prevention, $200 million for public computer centers at community colleges and libraries, and $650 million for the digital TV converter-box coupons.
The list goes on: $1 billion for administrative costs and construction of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration office buildings, $100 million for constructing U.S. Marshals office buildings, and $1.3 billion for NASA, including $450 million tagged for science.
Then there is the $300 million for hybrid and electric cars for the federal government. The funding includes golf carts for federal workers.
