Bountiful City Eyes Stimulus Pork

Bountiful is now interested in getting in at the government pork trough:

He said when the economy “sneezed,” it slowed the fund raising effort, but Tolman said he had contacted Senators Orrin Hatch and Bob Bennett to see if some of the stimulus money could be filtered toward the museum. “We just want a little slice, we won’t ask for much,” he said, explaining that “There’s a rich history in Bountiful that needs to be told.”

People in Tennessee, New Hampshire, or Salt Lake City and St. George, for that matter, have no reason to be forced to fund a local museum.  Here’s hoping Hatch and Bennett say no.
