WTC's Year-End Bonus

It must be nice to wake up to an extra $285 million. Not that we'd know, but now Larry Silverstein does. Governor Paterson signed an executive order Friday giving Silverstein $285M in unspent tax-exempt bonds for the World Trade Center's Tower 3. The bonds, which the state received from the federal government for city and county projects, were in danger of expiring unused because some local governments couldn't find anything to spend the money on.
