List of Agencies and their Certification Status -- 2005 Appropriations

From here, you can find information on earmarks in the appropriations bills for fiscal year 2005. In January, the President proposed earmark reforms, including cutting the number and amount by at least half [view excerpt from State of the Union]. When the data is complete, the aggregate totals will be the baseline from which the Administration will measure Congress' success in cutting earmarks in half.

This database is not designed, and cannot accurately be used, to identify the individual sponsors of congressional earmarks.

In fiscal year 2005, there were 12,034 earmarks totaling $14,262,807,000 for appropriations accounts that are certified. These totals do not include information on earmarks within accounts that are noted as "incomplete." The totals will change as agencies certify additional accounts.

*NOTE: In the status column, a status of "certified" indicates that the agency head or his or her designee has certified that the data the agency has submitted is the fullest possible disclosure of earmarks according to guidance.
