The State of Pork

Citizen’s Against Government Waste has ranked North Dakota 5th on per capita pork – $123.35 per person.

Some interesting line items from the Pig Book for North Dakota are (remember these are federal dollars):

  • $384,000 –  weed control
  • $1,750,000 –  Minot State University for the rural methamphetamine education demonstration
  • $1,400,000 – Battlefield production of hydrogen for fuel cell vehicles (do we have battlefield vehicles running on hydrogen yet?)
  • $1,200,000 – Advanced coating systems for ground-based military vehicles (paint?)
  • $350,000 – City of Killdeer to construct a community activity center
