Unfortunately, under the rules of the House of Representatives for the 115th Congress, Congressman Young is unable to request earmarks or direct funding to specific projects.
Under House Rule 21, clause 9, an earmark is defined as, “a provision or report language included primarily at the request of a Member, Delegate, Resident Commissioner, or Senator providing, authorizing or recommending a specific amount of discretionary budget authority, credit authority, or other spending authority for a contract, loan, loan guarantee, grant, loan authority, or other expenditure with or to an entity, or targeted to a specific State, locality or Congressional district, other than through a statutory or administrative formula driven or competitive award process.”
However, if you have a programmatic or legislative language request for the upcoming Fiscal Year 2018 Appropriations Bills, please submit your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for requests is March 31st, 2017, but we recommend submissions be received early enough to receive every consideration.
The request must identify:
- Subcommittee, Agency, and Account within Agency
- Program/Language Title
- Description of Program Request: 500 characters, including spaces
- Funding amount requested
- Amount in President’s FY18 budget (if available)
- Enacted level
If the request does not include a sign-on letter from multiple members of the House of Representatives, please include a small description of the request. This description can be the same as the 500 character request mentioned above, or an expanded version of it.
We do not have a standard request form, and do not accept earmark requests at this time – only programmatic or language.
