Congressman Jeff Miller Wants to Shower District with Earmark Money

The PNJ and Rick's Blog report that Pensacola’s representative in the House, Jeff Miller, has released his request for earmarks that will benefit our district. If the spending is approved, the earmarks would cost American taxpayers $117 million.

Like other Congressmen on Capitol Hill, Miller released a description and cost of all the earmark requests. The list included 30 requests for money that will mostly fund defense spending, road projects and education initiatives in our district.

Personally, I would like to see a major decrease in earmark spending, but let’s be real, that’s not going to happen anytime soon. We like earmarks when they benefit our area. Although, disclosing earmarks before they are voted on will help reform the process. It’s a start.

Tomorrow, I will talk about who the big winners will be if the earmark spending is approved.
