The point is whenever there is Federal, State or Local tax monies involved in a project you are in essence a govt. employee and seperate rules can apply. Such as local hiring first, piss testing, background investigations, swac cards, propeller hats, etc. etc. If a large percentage of local tax money is being used in project there are usually ancillary reasons for the funding. Primary reason to build the thing. An ancillary reason could be to stimulate the economy of the area--hence preferential local hiring. This is no more anti-american than having a hiring practice that only hires union carpenters.
