Egregious Earmark of the Week$597,000 for Montana Sheep Institute

‘This earmark is baaaaa-ad.’

Tucked away in the Agriculture appropriations bill (H.R. 2744) for fiscal year 2006 is what might literally be called a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

This week’s egregious earmark brought to you courtesy of Rep. Jeff Flake (R.-Ariz.) comes to the amount of $597,000 and is for the Montana Sheep Institute located in Bozeman, Montana.

"This earmark is baaaaa-ad," said Flake.

The bill was passed by the House 318-63 on October 25, and passed by the Senate 81-18 on November 3. It was signed into law by President Bush on November 10.
