The proposed Homeland Security spending bill for 2011 contains $69.95 million in earmarks for various Congressmen. 99% of the earmarked money goes to Democrats. The only Republican project is $800,000 for an emergency operations center in New Orleans sought by GOP Rep. Joseph Cao (La).
The Hill reported:
All earmarks in the proposed Homeland Security spending bill for 2011 went to Democrats — save one.
Rep. Joseph Cao (La.) was the only House Republican to win a Homeland Security earmark: $800,000 for Federal Emergency Management Administration state and local programs and an emergency operations center in New Orleans. Every other earmark was sponsored by a Democrat.
