The article assesses the decision of U.S. President George W. Bush to provide funds to charitable institutions with money coming from the tariffs collected on imports of Canadian lumber. White House officials say they made no plans for additional oversight partly because they do not consider the grants to be federal money. The tariffs were collected and paid, in the form of deposits, mostly by Canadian companies.
