Suffolk County missed the time deadline on earmarked funds. Classic government inefficiency in action - can't even get the money that they are given. But what is even dopier is that the money now “up for grabs”. Why? Money that the government had to borrow was not spent for the purpose it was intended. The government’s response to that situation is to look for a place to spend it ?? Obviously, wherever that is will have to be a place that is more adept at filling out government forms. The government is incentivizing municipalities to get really good pushing paper around. That will really help the economy.
