NC Localities Fighting Over DHS Funding

The News & Observer has an article about the fight between the state and local agencies on how to spend the money allocated to the state from Homeland Security.

North Carolina's allocation has shrunk from $54 million in 2004 to $30.5 million this year. About one-third is already earmarked by the federal government. State emergency officials are deciding now how to spend the rest -- and taking heat as they do it. The dwindling grants have touched off a spat between state and local officials over how to slice the smaller pie.
