Federal Agencies ‘Flush’ With Stimulus Cash
When President Obama spoke of how the stimulus would "rebuild our roads and our bridges and our schools," he forgot to mention another thing the stimulus will be rebuilding -- our bathrooms.
The stimulus will also be used to demolish the sauna and build showers in the women's locker room at Grand Forks Air Force Base in North Dakota. Bathrooms will also be renovated at the McConnell Air Force Base in Kansas, while the Laughlin Air Force Base in Texas will replace the fitness center steam rooms.
But the federal government isn't the only one spending recovery dollars on the nation's lavatorial infrastructure.
As we noted earlier, Oregon is planning new vinyl walls for its restrooms in Rose Lodge.
Admittedly, while Obama didn't mention bathrooms per se, he has spent a lot of time talking about the need to get rid of waste.
Officials have struggled to spend the nearly $800 billion stimulus package quickly and effectively.
