EarmarkWatch is an experimental distributed research project that contains data for Fiscal Year 2008 earmarks from the House and Senate Labor-HHS-Education bills and the 2008 House Defense Bill.

It does not contain 2009 earmarks. Congress released earmark disclosures for an omnibus bill that included three of the twelve regular appropriations bills—Defense, Homeland Security, and Military Construction/Veterans Affairs—for fiscal year 2009.

A downloadable spreadsheet listing those earmarks is available from Taxpayers for Common Sense - http://www.taxpayer.net/earmarks.php

Sen. Inouye (D-HI), the Senate appropriations chair, has Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education earmarks totaling $96,600,000.
