Eye On Olympia

Earmarks, get your earmarks here…

The federal Office of Management and Budget has created this interesting website to track earmarks in budget legislation. Earmarks, depending on whether you're getting one, are either critical local infrastructure projects or shameless political pork.

A simple search for, yes, "Spokane" turns up ten earmarks, mostly studies (the aquifer, high speed rail) and $2.5 million for improvements to Riverside Avenue.

See what's in there for you.
