Yesterday, to the shock of many, the Senate Finance flippantly moved $4.5m in funding for disabled folks to a private auto track. Apparently, your outrage seemed to work, as the fund transfer was partially “cured”, although you’d be wrong to think that meant the millionaire wasn’t getting his $4.5m in free track improvements.
Not this Legislature. Not this State.
Instead, the Senate retained the little bonus for Laney Chouest’s NOLA Motorsports track, but instead made sure they found the extra money to make it up to the disabled folks.
You get to have your pie and eat it too!
Apparently, Senator Donahue, he of “The answer to your question, Sen. Claitor, is yes,” fame, had a lot of trouble reading the Jindal Administration script on the budget today in the chamber. Keen eyed observer CBForgotston was watching:
The Senate easily adopted the budget with nary a word of protest! It’s all good, says Emperor Jindal.
Who knows what other fun little giveaways lurk in the dark matter of the Legislative Budget.
