A political action group is planning a protest in Frankfort tomorrow.
The Americans for Prosperity Foundation targets examples of pork barrel spending.
They want to criticize a $36,000 grant given to the Gaming Office by the Kentucky Department of Homeland Security.
A spokeswoman for the Washington D.C. based group says Homeland Security Funds probably shouldn't be used for something like a state gaming office.
Gaming Officials say the grand is being used to train employees how to deal with a wide range of security issues.
The group plans to protest in several states, including Ohio, West Virginia, Mississippi, and Missouri.
