Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) released the sixth installment of his annual “Festivus Report.” It's a yearly look at some of the ways Sen. Paul says the U.S. Government is wasting taxpayer money.

Sen. Paul is the chairman of the Federal Spending Oversight and Emergency Management subcommittee for the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

His 2020 report shows several examples of what the senator calls more than $54 billion in wasteful spending by the U.S. Government.

According to a release from Paul, sections of this year’s report include lizards on treadmills, losing over 100 drones in Afghanistan, and combating binge-watching.

After a damp start to our Monday, the rain and skies gradually cleared for many of us and we were left with a pleasant and breezy, albeit humid afternoon throughout the Tri-State. The southerly winds paired with the clearer skies later in the day helped drive temperatures back into mid to low 80s for many of us. The evening ahead should remain dry and mild; after seeing temperatures around 80° dinnertime and 75° by 10PM, we'll fall off to a morning low near 69° in Evansville early Tuesday morning.
