House Appropriators outline a process for a partial return of Earmarks

Van Scoyoc Associates has collected information on the limited revival of earmarks in the House.

Highlights include:

-- Members of the House will be limited to 10 project funding requests “though only a handful may actually get funded.”

-- The Member database for submitting earmark and programmatic requests will become available on March 29th and will remain open until “mid-April.” This means that House Appropriations Subcommittee deadlines will fall somewhere in the range of March 29th and mid-April.

-- Submissions require demonstrated community support as a condition for an earmark to being considered for funding.

Two critical but as yet unknown variables:

-- We still do not know which accounts are eligible for Congressional earmarks. Each Appropriations Subcommittee will be soon providing letters outlining which accounts within their bills which will be earmark eligible.

-- We still do not have definitive word yet on House Republican Conference participation in this limited revival of earmarks.
