Proposed Prison Museum Dubbed Pork

A grassroots free-market advocacy group has arrived in Topeka hoping to draw attention to Congresswoman Nancy Boyda's $1.18 million request for a new Kansas Regional Prisons Museum.

Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips and State Director Alan Cobb will be in front of the Lansing Correctional Facility, 301 East Kansas St. in Lansing at 2:00 p.m. Tuesday.

The organization last year traveled to 37 states across the United States highlighting what it described as 50 questionable pork-barrel earmarks.

The group claims its initiatives have led to significant earmark reforms, such as Members of Congress now being forced to attach their names to projects in advance.
