Defense bill pet projects cut by half
from The Hill
One of the most powerful panels in the House has slashed the number of pet projects in the annual Pentagon spending bill by more than half. The reduction in the Defense Department's new spending measure illustrates how much has changed in the lucrative world of defense earmarks since last year. Republicans have banned pork-barrel projects from spending bills, while Democrats have instituted a moratorium on for-profit earmarks.
