Brief Executive Summary
From the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, the Subcommittee on Federal Spending Oversight and Emergency Management led by Senator Rand Paul issued a weekly waste report describing a concern with respect to the National Science Foundation's spending of nearly $270,000 to research how the availability of alternative fuel affects a person's decision to buy or lease a vehicle that runs on something other than gasoline. The report takes issue with the government funding of this study in comparison to those companies producing and selling alternative fuel vehicles.
