Molinaro asking for pork for Leeds and Athens

Apr 20, 2023 12:23 pm

Andrea Macko in Porcupine Soup reports that Rep. Marc Molinaro announced many community development and improvement projects in his 19th Congressional District that he submitted to the House Committee on Appropriations. This is what is sometimes called pork in Washington D.C. Each Congressional representative may request funding for up to 15 projects each Fiscal Year. Not all projects are guaranteed funding, but most get their dollars, under the guidelines issued by the Appropriations Committee. Locally, Molinaro asked for $2.4 million for the Village of Athens to rehabilitate its wastewater plant and another $2.4 million for Greene County Highway and Solid Waste Department to improve Main Street in Leeds.
