The garage "fiasco" has to be one of the dumbest news stories of last year. Nobody seemed to care except for news reporters and politicians trying to make a story where there wasn't one before. The federal government lets error like this one happen all the time. Of course after the media breaks the story, the federal government has to officially request that the money be returned.
Yeah, somebody fucked up, but all the finger pointing will never resolve whose fault it was. With a project that big, and with as many participants in it, everyone thought that someone else was taking care of the problem. the garage was okay as originally approved by the state, but when the state used federal funds as their promised contribution, new compliance issues came up, but never got followed.
