House Democrats Propose $410 Billion Spending Bill

“The measure includes thousands of earmarks, the pet projects favored by lawmakers but often criticized by the public in opinion polls. There was no official total of the bill’s earmarks, which accounted for at least $3.8 billion.”

“The bill will contain about 9,000 earmarks totaling $5 billion, congressional officials say. Many of the earmarks — loosely defined as local projects inserted by members of Congress — were inserted last year as the spending bills worked their way through various committees.”

In other news, my House Rep. (Mike Thompson) requested $640k in spending for Oregon State University…Mike Thompson represents my district in CALIFORNIA. (Page 212 of pdf, 47 of actual document)
