ABSTRACT
The article reports on the proposal of a $400,000 federal appropriation for the city of Las Vegas in Nevada by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in order to fight copper wire theft. Such earmark is included in the Commerce Science Justice appropriations bill in the Congress. The Citizens Against Government Waste censured the copper theft prevention funding proposal by Reid and placed it on its list of Pork Alert. It notes that about 148 sites have been hit by copper thieves in 2008 and the county has only had the resources to repair 15.
