Sports center plan behind sked: lawmakers

DPP Legislator Yeh Yi-jin (葉宜津) accused the Ma administration of class discrimination and unequal allocation of resources between urban and rural areas.

Citing as an example a sports stadium in Greater Tainan’s Sin-ying District (新營), Yeh said that the indoor basketball court of the center suffered from a leaking roof and damaged flooring, but the district had a hard time trying to obtain a budget of only hundreds of thousands of New Taiwan dollars for maintenance from the central government.
