It should be pointed out that the surge in competitive grants is due in large part to the moratorium on earmarks.
Today in a roundtable discussion at the Transportation Policy Summit through the University of Va’s Miller Center Panelists raised the issue that while we went overboard in the past maybe earmarks were not all that bad. They helped get the reauthorizations passed. However, some sort of performance or results based criteria are needed.
