From the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, the Senate Subcommittee on Federal Spending Oversight and Emergency Management led by Senator Rand Paul issued a weekly waste report on the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) intending to spend $500k on building a parking lot for Golden Eagle Casino in Apache, OK.
