Hey big spender

Remember last week's post on all the money going to local governments for various construction projects? The Liberty Times reports KMT mayors and county commissioners had known about the funding about months ago and have been preparing their suggestion list for what projects the money should be spent on since then. In contrast, green mayors and county commissioners were given just two days to come up with project lists.

Those green mayors and county commissioners held a press conference to complain about this inequality, and quoted Taichung mayor Jason Hu's acknowledgment that he knew about the spending plan in February.

Would you rather have two months or two days to prepare to spend money on projects that need to be finished by the end of June?
