Feds to give big dollars to Washington ports
Okay, it looks like the Department of Homeland Security has allocated several million dollars to Washington Ports, including the Port of Grays Harbor, which received no funds last year. Here's the quote from the Seattle PI:
"The ports of Vancouver, Longview and Grays Harbor are also receiving $935,000 between the three of them after they failed to receive any such money in 2006."
The largest recipient, strangely, is the Port of Tacoma, which is great, although I wonder how much of this money is being earmarked to pay for increased police presence during protests. I'd love to know if, just like Miami during the FTAA protests, this money was pre-allocated to pay for surveillance and intimidation of peaceful protestors by police and federal agents.
