What Does the Impact of The Sea Level Rise Have To Do With Regional Commissions?
June 23, 2008
This is exactly what I am wondering after reading the e-mail sent from Linda Summerall to various Northern Virginia legislators about their upcoming meeting, which is about (envelope, please) “The Potential Impacts of Global Sea Level Rise on the Mid-Atlantic Region.” Hmm, sounds like my taxes are being wasted to fund meetings that should be focused on transportation improvements or something more relevant.
At least, Ken Cuccinelli stands up for the taxpayers with his retort by agreeing with most taxpayers and saying that it is a waste of our taxes to be discussing such irrelevant topics.
Here is the exchange and H/T to BVBL:
