"Oversight" of Spending? Please!

Here's what Jimbo Doylie calls "oversight" of spending Porkulus dollars:

Under the state plan, Gov. Jim Doyle would provide spending plans to Miller and the other committee leader, Rep. Mark Pocan of Madison. All three are Democrats.

If Miller and Pocan approved them, the projects would proceed. If either objected, the 16-member Joint Finance Committee would meet within two weeks to vote on the spending plans. The matter would not go to the full Legislature.

Remember that the word 'oversight' has two disparate meanings.
