Three House Republicans have ignored their caucus' ban on requesting earmarks this year.  Rep. Joseph Cao, R-La., has requested projects totaling more than $500 million for his district. 

In addition, Rep. Don Young, R-Alaska, and Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, have also requested millions of dollars worth of earmarks despite the party's moratorium.
