U.S. House lawmakers have begun soliciting earmarks in next year’s spending bills under new guidelines Democratic leaders have circulated. After President Joe Biden’s signature last Tuesday on a $1.5 trillion fiscal 2022 omnibus package, House Appropriations Chair Rosa DeLauro (D-CT), wrote to colleagues Friday outlining initial steps for members to obtain “community project funding” in fiscal 2023 spending bills. In the U.S. Senate, members have already begun soliciting earmark requests from constituents based on last year’s guidelines, though the rules in that chamber could still be tweaked.
