fThis was one government stimulus plan that yielded quick results. Maybe too quick. Far more drivers signed up for the "cash for clunkers" program than anyone thought, overwhelming showrooms, blowing through the initial $1 billion set aside by Congress and leaving dealers panicked over when or if the government would make good on the hefty rebates.

As you know, it is my philosophy that the better informed our deputies and the community are, the more efficiently and effectively we can work together to keep our community safe.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) - The House voted overwhelmingly Friday to rush $2 billion into the popular but financially strapped "cash for clunkers" car purchase program, heeding calls from consumers eager to keep taking advantage of thousands of dollars in trade-in incentives.
