Municipalities Getting Double The Federal Cash

Municipal politicians are smiling today -- the federal government has come through with double the amount of gas tax revenue to help with infrastructure projects.
Veterans Affairs Minister Greg Thompson says it's in response to the needs of municipalities.
Thompson says the federal government has also cut the red tape so the money is in the bank now rather than municipalities having to wait at least three months for the cash to flow -- he says it's part of Ottawa's plan to help stimulate the economy.
