Description

A Tribune-Review examination of the most recent round of Legislative Initiative Grants--commonly known as Walking Around Money or WAM grants--reveals that lawmakers initiated $24.7 million in WAM spending the first six months of this year for a vast array of projects. WAM is tax money set aside annually for legislative leaders to dole out to individual lawmakers, who in turn distribute the money to pet lawmakers. (Oct. 1994) Also see file #8872 for the 1993 WAM report.
