The Associated Press just published an interesting story about a hearing on Bajagua that happened today in Washington, D.C.

U.S. Rep. Bob Filner, D-Chula Vista, one of Bajagua’s most vocal supporters, attacked federal agencies for seeking money for a backup plan if Bajagua fails.

The AP reports:

House members Tuesday angrily accused federal officials of blocking a $700 million sewage plant being developed in Mexico under a no-bid U.S. contract.

Congressional supporters of the project — whose backers have spent heavily on campaign donations and lobbying — vowed to block money the Bush administration wants for an alternate plan on the U.S. side.

“You ain’t gonna get it,” Rep. Bob Filner, D-San Diego, told officials from the EPA and the International Boundary and Water Commission at a hearing.
