Subsidies (We Scored a Small Victory)

Paul, our crack researcher, found a case that Wal-Mart lost
in the city of Chula Vista. They'd been given an illegal
subsidy, to the tune of $1.9 million, and two citizens
fought it. Three of our members sent a letter to the
City or Rosemead about this law.

Folks are saying that there
won't be a subsidy for this project. Did they mean
"ever" or "now, since you've dug up this law"?

Imagine what could be happening if good folks like Paul
weren't doing this critical research. The city might
have given Wal-Mart an illegal freebie at taxpayer expense.
