Following the announcement by Rep. David Obey, chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, and Rep. Norm Dicks, incoming chairman of the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, that members can no longer earmark funs to for profit companies, the House Republicans have adopted a one-year moratorium on earmark requests.
The deadline for House members to submit earmark requests to the Appropriations Committee is March 19.
As of now, neither Senate Democrats or Republicans have announced any changes to their earmarking procedures, so for-profit companies could still receive earmarks and Republican Senators could request earmarks for districts represented by House G.O.P. members.
