The Important Work of GovernmentPosted by Andrew Moylan - July 07, 2008
H.R. 5975 - To designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 101 West Main Street in Waterville, New York, as the "Cpl. John P. Sigsbee Post Office" (Sponsored by Rep. Arcuri / Oversight and Government Reform Committee)
H.R. 6061 - To designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 219 East Main Street in West Frankfort, Illinois, as the "Kenneth James Gray Post Office Building" (Sponsored by Rep. Costello / Oversight and Government Reform Committee)
H.R. 6092 - To designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 101 Tallapoosa Street in Bremen, Georgia, as the "Sergeant Paul Saylor Post Office Building" (Sponsored by Rep. Gingrey / Oversight and Government Reform Committee)
H.R. 6184 - America’s Beautiful National Parks Quarter Dollar Coin Act (Sponsored by Rep. Castle / Financial Services Committee)
H.R. 1286 - Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route National Historic Trail Designation Act (Subject to a Rule) (Sponsored by Rep. Hinchey / Natural Resources Committee)
This one isn't on the calendar for this week, but our good friend Tim Wise from the Arlington County Taxpayers Association brought to my attention this little gem (by way of Jim Harper at Washington Watch)...
H.R. 6068 - The "Don't Let the Bed Bugs Bite" Act of 2008, sponsored by Rep. Butterfield and co-sponsored by such stalwart defenders of taxpayer interests as Don "Bridge to Nowhere" Young (R-AK) and Bill "Cold Cash" Jefferson (D-LA).
This bill would spend $50 million of your dollars each year to fund bed bug inspectors. Seriously. The worst part about this bill is that every pun or joke I can think of is so horribly lame that I might have to punch myself in the face if I were to use them.
Sorry, I can't resist...suffice it to say this kind of thing bugs me. *punch*
