New Jersey Democrat wants pork-free Sandy storm aid bill

New Jersey Democrat wants pork-free Sandy storm aid bill 11 Jan 2013 New Jersey Democratic Rep. Rob Andrews is demanding his colleagues strip pork payouts from a massive aid bill intended to help victims of Superstorm Sandy. The Senate's Sandy bill, first introduced last month, includes millions of dollars that would never touch the affected Northeast. Taxpayers for Common Sense, a Washington-based watchdog group, released an analysis of the bill on Thursday, stating the $51 billion measure includes millions for roof repairs at Smithsonian buildings, FBI salaries and expenses, and for the Drug Enforcement Administration to repair 15 vehicles. Under the terms of the bill, every state except Arizona, Michigan and South Carolina would be competing for the money, Taxpayers for Common Sense found.
