Warm Weather Leaves Lots Of Money For Snow Removal Budget

BOSTON (CBS) – The lack of snow so far this winter is probably hurting private contractor plow drivers, but the state of Massachusetts is saving a lot of cash because of it.

As of early January 2011, the state had spent $22 million to clear the roads.

This winter, aside from the Halloween storm, costs have been minimal.

So far, according to The State House News Service, the state has spent about $10.5 million.

If the weather does change, Massachusetts has $50 million budgeted for winter snow removal.

    Watch them try to “use” some of it now….and then see what happens when it DOES snow. They’ll all be crying poor mouth and wanting to raise taxes yet again.
    The typical vicious circle of Masshole politics.
