CONGRESS DEBATES THE HIGH COST OF SLEEPING EASY IN ATLANTA
Published June 12, 1996
U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said ACOG should reimburse the Pentagon "much more" for services during the Games, according to Eunice Moscoso of the ATLANTA CONSTITUTION. A Senate Judiciary Committee hearing turned into a debate "on the proper use of military personnel during the Olympics." ACOG claims to have reimbursed $169,400 to the Defense Department and is planning to pay at least $102,700 more for "nonsecurity items." But Pentagon figures note ACOG has reimbursed $564,930 for "a variety of services," which could hit $816,000. McCain said the military will have dedicated 13,000 personnel and $51M in support, calling much of it an ACOG subsidy (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 6/12).
