North Carolina Gets $23 Million For Irene Road Repair

North Carolina will get more than $23 million to help cover the costs of repairing roads and bridges damaged by Hurricane Irene in 2011.

The money comes from the Federal Highway Administration's Emergency Relief Program. A total of $1.58 billion is being given to 30 states and other locations.

The federal government will reimburse these areas for costs associated with repairing roads and bridges.

California received the largest allotment, more than $3.25 billion, for a mudslide and two storms.

    We should turn over our government to Hells Angles they have better morals than our politicians. This money will be wasted on something else or in someones pocket.

    I wonder where the governor is going to spend this wind fall. Is it going to be in the East where the damage was done by the storms or is it going into the General Fund where it can be tapped for her and her cronies pet projects. Most likely we will never know where this money is spent or whose pockets are lined with it. Crooked politicians never change. We need a watchdog over these funds to make sure they go to the RIGHT place.
