"The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee approved a proposal today that purports to save taxpayers upwards of $540 million. This will be done by transferring a government office building on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC, to the National Gallery of Art, which claims to need the additional space. As part of the Smithsonian, the Gallery can raise the private funds necessary to renovate and maintain this government building. The problem is the building’s current occupants don’t want to leave. They would be the Federal Trade Commission." (02/16/11)
