(Update to yesterday's post - McDermott's requests added near bottom)

House Members have submitted their appropriations project funding requests to the Appropriations Committee. The “surviving” WSDOT projects are listed below, and a complete list of state and local agency transportation projects submitted by Members is in the document below.

A couple Members noted receiving about 150 requests (across all issue areas), in one case totaling about $7.5 billion. Click on a member’s link to see their entire list of submissions for all issue areas, and comments about the process (some are included in the document).

This does NOT guarantee an earmark. Some - but perhaps not all - of these requests will make it through the committee process and into the House appropriations bill. The same process will take place in the Senate in the last half of April.
