"Let me see what he calls earmarks."
Last week, Sen. Kit Bond said he favored tax credits for businesses, a temporary reduction in Social Security contributions and money for public works projects in an economic stimulus package.
When asked whether he would support earmarks for other local projects in the bill, Bond responded: "We'll work on those in the regular appropriations process."
ALSO: A Bond K.C. Regional Director says: "If it’s not an earmark. What is it?"
Bond's office estimates a package could mean $7 billion for Missouri.
AND: On Tuesday, Bond's office announced $15 million dollars from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, including $1.4 million for Burrell Behavioral Health, Inc. in Springfield to construct a 14 unit multifamily complex, serving very low-income people with disabilities.
