The New York Times is running an article on the costs of the Inauguration for the DC City Government.
Apparently RNC/DNC convention host cities (Denver, St Paul) received $50 million from the federal government for security for those individual events. The District is allotted just $15 million for all events for the year. Also crazy was Dan Tangherlini saying if it snowed on Inauguration it would cost the city upwards of $1 million to plow the parade route! A million bucks ain’t what it used to be.
