Recently, Taxpayers for Common Sense and Citizens against Government Waste (CAGW) released comprehensive databases highlighting earmarks in the Fiscal 2008 Labor, Health and Human Services and Education (Labor-HHS) Appropriations Bill, H.R. 3043.

You may remember that on November 13 the President vetoed this bill and the House successfully sustained his veto on November 15.  Following his veto, President Bush stated: 

“This bill has too many earmarks   I set out clear goals for the Congress to reform the earmarking process.  The Congress chose not to put earmarks in bill text, instead including nearly all in report language, and they did not reach the goal of cutting the cost and number of earmarks by at least half.”
