White House Clamps Down on Earmarks - Sort Of

AIP FYI #27: Bush Administration Draws a Firm Line on FY 2007 Earmarks

"A February 15 memorandum from the Office of Management and Budget instructs the heads of federal departments and agencies not to obligate funding for earmarks contained in congressional reports or documents through September 30 of this year. Earmarked funding can only be provided for a project or activity if it has been specifically identified in statutory text. As a result, earmarks for thousands of projects remaining from previous years have been canceled."
