Eye On Boise

Of mice and miscues…

Here's a link to my full story at on the stimulus-mouse flap, and here's a statement from Brad Hoaglun, Sen. Jim Risch's spokesman:

"The reality is the stimulus bill is so large and pushed through so fast that no one really knows conclusively what will be funded in the bill until federal agencies put together their lists (which was how the mouse came onto the radar screen). That is why Senator Risch has cautioned Idaho legislators from spending the money until they know how much money, how long it will last, and what strings are attached.  Many logical conclusions can be made about the stimulus spending, and will continue to be made, until specific projects are funded."
