State Shadows.

I'm reading the conference committee report for H.B. 25 "Making Appropriations For Capital Improvements."

Some interesting reading here.

So I'm scrolling down though the 'expenditures' columns past all the roof and water system replacements and come on to Rail Improvements-Equal Match To Private Funds  600,000. And it's in Coos County an area of NH I've been spending alot of time in recently.

What is this? HB 25. Does This Legislation Include $600,000 For A Railroad In Coos County?

Then I read down further into the footnotes: "Capital Budget; project purpose amended state treasurer authorized appropriation RSA 6-A."

Is this a matching grant for the St. Lawrence & Atlantic Railroad in Coos County?

This seems like a "shadow government" to me.
