SLAY vs. TUSCUMBIA
CNN's Drew Griffin reports that St. Louis' Mayor thinks Missouri is directing its stimulus money to "rural, far-flung projects that have stalled and almost been forgotten -- until now."
Is Tuscumbia's bridge project "in the middle of nowhere and nowhere on the road to recovery?," as Griffin reports.
"This is an insult to the city of St. Louis, a violation of federal law, and I think they're spending this money contrary to the intent of Congress," Mayor Francis Slay said.
