Egregious Earmark of the Week$446,000 Oyster Treatment in Florida

Congressman Jeff Flake (R.-Ariz.) has discovered another egregious earmark buried in the Agriculture appropriations bill (H.R. 2744) for fiscal year 2006.

This week’s "award-winning" earmark will fund oyster post harvest treatment in Florida to the amount of $446,000.

"This earmark really shucks," 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.

Mr. Flake represents the 6th District of Arizona in the U.S. House of Representatives. He serves on the Committee on the Judiciary, the Committee on International Relations and the Committee on Resources.
