As The Hill reports today, the appropriations committee in the U.S. House of Representatives seems to waffle on the enforcement of their recent earmarks disclosure rule.
According to the rule spelled out in February, House members were required to disclose their earmark requests on their official websites by April 4. Those not in compliance, were supposed to have their requests rejected out of hand.
However, the appropriations committee now seems more lenient and "will likely give a pass to the dozens of members who missed the panel’s deadline for posting their earmark requests on the Internet," according to the Hill.
And so the earmark saga continues… stay tuned.
