Bringing Home the Bacon

Richard Shelby is leaving his position as chairman of the U.S. Senate's Chairman of the Transportation, Treasury and General Government Subcommittee to assume the chairmanship of the Commerce, Justice, and Science Appropriations Subcommittee. Some say this may mean less pork for Alabama. the hard-nosed arena of congressional wheeling and dealing, some observers predict the recent shift could make it harder for Shelby to bring back the millions of dollars worth of federal "pork" money that Alabama civic leaders have increasingly come to count on for big-ticket projects.
Am I the only one in Alabama who thinks that this isn't necessarily a bad thing?
