APTA Workshop on the Congressional Earmark Process
Recorded On: 04/06/2021
For the first time in years, constituents may request “earmarked” Congressional spending for specific purposes. On Tuesday, April 6, at 3:00 p.m., APTA will host a Workshop to discuss the new federal earmark processes.
All earmark requests must originate from Members of Congress. If you are interested in a transit earmark, APTA encourages you to work directly with your Representatives as soon as possible to identify potential projects for inclusion in surface transportation legislation or the transportation appropriations bill.
Both the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and the House Committee on Appropriations have announced Congressional earmark processes for their respective bills. To date, neither Senate Democrats nor Republicans have outlined their processes for considering earmarks.
