Bond To Tout Housing Measure In Bill He Trashed

Sen. Kit Bond will appear at stops in Ozark and Springfield Wednesday to highlight the importance of low income housing measures in the economic stimulus bill.

According to KHQA, Bond backed a $2 billion dollar amendment in the federal economic stimulus package to jump start low income housing projects halted by the economy.

Bond voted against the overall stimulus package, decrying it as a wasteful "trillion dollar baby."

But he's now touting $40 million dollars that available for low income housing in Missouri.
Previously, the senior Senator has said the Democratic stimulus package won't create as many jobs as projected. But Bond believes this provision will save jobs, "employing more than 3,000 people in Missouri alone."
