Coming Soon: Our Next Farm Investigation
What do snowmobile clubs, movie theaters, water parks and alligator hunters have to do with the U.S. Department of Agriculture? They are beneficiaries of a little-known federal program intended to create jobs and encourage development in rural areas.
In the next installment of the Harvesting Cash investigation of farm spending, The Post's Gilbert M. Gaul will examine the claims of the multi-billion-dollar rural development program and explain why losses have been huge for taxpayers. Watch for the project to be published in the coming days. And check back here for other sneak previews of our investigative work.
