In the third of a five-day earmark report, Paul Singer talked about

earmarks in a disaster mitigation grant program administered by FEMA.

The earmarks were included in a 2008 omnibus appropriations bill. Mr.

Singer responded to telephone calls. 

Joe Hunter, participating by phone, talked about a $250,000 earmark

sponsored by Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-PA) for the town of Yardley, PA

in his district. The earmark is designated for construction of "back

flow" inhibitors, designed to prevent water from backing up into

downtown. A major flood occurred in Yardley in 2006.

Also participating by phone, Maggie Brooks talked about a $1 million earmark sponsored by Rep. Randy Kuhl (R-NY) for the Monroe County, New York

Office of Emergency Preparedness in his district - specifically for a radiological emergency response plan. close
