Earmark Lists: Look for Them Around October 1
Transparency freak that I am, all weekend I’ve been pondering (read, savoring) when we’d see the first earmark lists now mandated by House rules. And, thanks to Dana Chasin at OMB Watch, we now know it will be around October 1st when appropriations conference reports make it to the House floor or when an omnibus appropriations package comes under consideration.
The first bills likely to come to the floor are Homeland Security and Defense.
The blogosphere will be poised to pounce on this information as soon as it’s available.
