Earmark Reform, Chapter 2177

Tom Maguire notes that House Appropriations chair Dave Obey was the leader in developing the new House rules on earmarks.

Put me on the list of those who believe that this marks a real change (though not an absolute revolution). Dave Obey is an old-school 'good-government' type. And while he may be in support of a bigger government than I like, he is honest. I suspect this will lead to fewer earmarks.

By the way, read the new House rules here, at the Rules Committee website.

Back to the top.
