This video from Republican Whip Eric Cantor’s You Cut Program explains how much money is being spent on highway signs that herald a work zone paid for by last year’s stimulus bill and Putting Americans Back to Work. If you have traveled the highways of other states you may have seen these signs promoting a work zone where absolutely nothing is being done. These signs, because of their reflectivity characteristics, are extremely costly.
Paying for signs that advertise a work zone where no work is happening is not only frivolous spending, it is political propaganda.
Chet Edwards (D-TX17) voted – NO CUT on this item.
