Earmarks

On January 29, 2008, the President signed Executive Order 13457, "Protecting American Taxpayers from Government Spending on Wasteful Earmarks". This directed that, "All written communications from the Congress, or a House, committee, Member, officer, or staff thereof, recommending that funds be committed, obligated, or expended on any earmark shall be made publicly available on the Internet by the receiving agency, not later than 30 days after receipt of such communication, unless otherwise specifically directed by the head of the agency, without delegation, after consultation with the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, to preserve appropriate confidentiality between the executive and legislative branches." In accordance with this order, the links below provide access to this written correspondence.
