Emergency declaration on erosion

Governor Chester declares War on sediment.

Apparently having numerous emergency powers that may come in handy in a re-election bid (there I go again with the jaded outlook), our governor can spend money our state doesn't have.
Gov. Chet Culver signed an emergency proclamation Wednesday that will allow remedial work to control erosion from the silt-laden bed of the former Lake Delhi.
Estimated cost of $800,000.

If power of the purse resides in the legislature (or so I was taught), then how can a benevolent and trustworthy public official be questioned by anyone?

He's just trying to control erosion and save the fish.

Erosion never happens in the real world, right?
