State-by-State Distribution of SAFETEA-LU “Above-the-Line” Highway Earmarks

State-by-State Distribution of SAFETEA-LU “Above-the-Line” Highway Earmarks

This is a 2-page PDF table from the January 17, 2006 issue of Transportation Weekly that shows the state-by-state distribution of the House’s $3.7 billion and the Senate’s $3.2 billion in “above-the-line” earmarks from title I (highways) of the 2005 SAFETEA-LU law. “Above-the-line” earmarks were the kind preferred by committee and party leaders, because above-the-line earmarks didn’t count against state formula funding totals, while the $14.8 billion in “below-the-line” earmarks did.
