When Good Acronyms Go Bad

Perhaps this isn’t the stimulus you were expecting?

The LUST Provision of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (‘LUST Recovery Act Program’, for short) has guidelines stating that, “…certain LUST expenditures are subject to the prevailing wage requirements.” It defines “LUST Recovery Act performance measures” and warns that states that do not spend the money quickly enough will be penalized for “failure to perform.”

What does LUST stand for? Leaking Underground Storage Tank. And don’t you try and tell the federal government that contaminated ground water isn’t sexy.
