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 looking at an animal problem at Fort Irwin, California. The report looks into an invasive population of burros and coyotes, and how the Department of Defense is contracting New Mexico State University to do a study on this situation that costs $218,000. The report asserts that a much cheaper solution would be to stop feeding the animals to combat their activeness in the region, and that since this is just a study, there will likely be more taxpayer money used to implement solutions found from the study.
