Spreading the Wealth Around

Posted By on Tue, Mar 31, 2009 at 3:47 PM

Congressman Raul Grijalva tells us—and the rest of the world—that he's delivering nearly $200 million in stimulus bucks for a remodel of the Nogales-Mariposa Port of Entry.

“This is important for all of Arizona,” Grijalva press-releases. “Not only will it help our local economy but our communities are increasingly concerned about security. Safety along our border is vital as Arizona continues to become more important in trade with Mexico. The funding is crucial in modernizing border infrastructure that will enhance security while promoting economic development and improving the quality of life in the border region.”

Grijalva had asked for $174 million for the port of entry remodel on his list of earmarks. Should be a big economic boost to a corner of the state that could use one.
