More choices for better transportation

South Dakota steals transport funds

This ain’t over yet. It’s just brazen.

A Pierre TV station carries the news based on an AP story. You can get it all on the link.

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) Despite a call for an investigation into how South Dakota spent some federal transportation money, an official from the state Legislative Audit office says the state did nothing wrong.

U.S. Representative James Oberstar of Minnesota says South Dakota did not have authority to spend $1.5 million on a state plane in 2005. The plane is used by Gov. Mike Rounds.

The money was supposed to be used for Amtrak, intercity bus lines or airline services.
