I couldn't make this up if i wanted to

The state Environmental Protection Division earlier this month fined the DOT $62,500 for failing to get the necessary environmental permits for the installation of cable barriers on Ga. 400. The Georgia Department of Transportation is grappling with a potential $1 billion shortfall.

DOT spokesman Mark McKinnon said DOT will pay the fines, not the contractor who is doing the work. "He was going on our instructions," McKinnon said.

So let me get this straight....One tax funded state agency is fined by another tax funded state agency for not doing their job.....and we the tax payers get fucked with the bill.....correct? IT'S TIME WE HOLD OUR GOV'T ACCOUNTABLE!
