Hey, we could really use that $11 million!

Today the governor announced that he is directing the Kentucky Department of Transportation to spend $13.6 million of contingency funds to make emergency repairs to highways damaged in winter storms. $13.6 million from contingency funds.

A better idea to help fund these emergency repairs would be to not allocate $11 million for highway enhancements and tax incentives for theme parks

That $11 million would be a good chunk of the 13.6 needed.

Using the 11 million to off-set the cost of the repairs is a great idea. Since it is a great idea it will never be used--politicians seem to hate great ideas.

You are absolutely correct. There seems to be an aversion to great ideas. You know, ideas like repealing prevailing wage laws and offering more choice to parents for their child's education.
