Brief Executive Summary
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 regarding a federal government grant program that gave a for-profit Afghan TV station around $350,000 to develop a national cricket league and train broadcasters, and which is now offering a $500,000 grant extension. The report takes issue with sponsoring a program geared towards youth in an area where 0.003 percent of the population have TVs.
