2009 Maine Piglet Book


Today The Maine Heritage Policy Center and Citizens Against Government Waste released the 2009 Maine Piglet Book, which details at least $2 billion in Maine government waste.

Some of the highlights (or lowlights) in the book:

$82,533 for bottled water in 2008.
$20,000 to produce “My Fair Lady” in an Ogunquit playhouse.
$155,000,000 on the failed government-run Dirigo health program.

I’ll blog about the reaction to the 2009 Piglet Book in the next couple days.
