Bass Pro Study

Posted By on Thu, Jun 10, 2010 at 2:40 PM

Well, I was going to blog about this Bass Pro report called "Fishing For Taxpayer Cash" today, but it appears John Branston beat me to it.

So now I'm just going to link to John's post instead.

But just a small note: The report has a nice chart about the more than $567 million in taxpayer subsidies given to Bass Pro for its various projects. That equals out to about $29 million in taxpayer subsidies per project. We've promised about $42 million in federal stimulus bonds to fund the Pyramid project.
