Remember the absolutely critical Omnibus spending bill Congress muscled through at the end of last year? It was 4,000 pages that no one read and cost taxpayers $1.7 trillion.
In our Let's Cut Some Spending series, ForAmerica will chronicle parts of the 2021 and 2022 spending bills from a variety of sources that you probably don't know about - programs, grants and spending of all kinds that should have never happened in the first place and many that are still happening.
Today’s offering: $3 million to fund fishing in Guam!
Guam's Pacific Daily News reports:
A measure that includes $3 million in funding for Guam’s Fishermen’s Co-op and extended Medicaid funding for the territories was signed into law by President Biden this week.
The House Appropriations Committee introduced its omnibus funding package H.R. 2471, which included specific provisions for Guam and the territories, according to Del. Michael San Nicolas. The act was approved by the Senate last week, and signed into law on Tuesday, Washington time.
Something tells us that the folks in Guam could fish just fine and don't need $3 million in tax dollars to do it.
