My congressional sources have been hard at work this week to spot pork-barrel projects in the news. Earlier in the week Erick told you about Rep. Jim Oberstar's (D.-Minn.) obsession with bicycle paths and I shared a bunch of other transportation-related pork. Today I have a few more items to add to the menu.
• Tens of millions in earmarks for the Museum of Moving Image, the Museum of Glass and Other Museums
• $1 million earmark for a sidewalk in Maine
• More than $2 million for a bus depot in California for an area that already had a bus depot and city officials did not see as an immediate priority
• Federal earmark of unspecified amount to rebuild a courthouse in West Virginia where the governor says he is unwilling to set a precedent by using state money to construct county buildings
• $1 million for downtown streetscapes in Pittsfield, Mass; $150,000 for repairs to
the William Cullen Bryant homestead in Cummington, Mass.; $275,000 to renovate the Berkshire Music Hall in Massachusetts
