Re: Red-hot PORK for Red States in Sandy Bill.

Pork is anything that is totally unrelated to what the bill is meant to do. It is all the extra spending put in for spending in a politicians district to get his vote.

I also found a better breakdown of this pork in the ORIGINAL Sandy Bill.

$ 58.8 Million for reforestation on PRIVATE LAND.

$197 Million to protect coastal ecosystems and habitat impacted by Hurricane Sandy ( This may not be considered pork)

$10.78 Billion for public transportation most of which is allocated to future construction and improvements.
