A Kansas U.S. senator has criticized the Kansas Department of Transportation's plan to repave five miles of old state Highway 96 with $760,000 in stimulus funds. The project may have to be redone next year if another stimulus-funded project damages the road with heavy trucks. "Using stimulus funding to pave this road twice is clearly not in the best interest of American taxpayers, and it does not pass the Kansas common-sense test," said Sen. Pat Roberts.
