The Academic Pork Barrel Begins To Fill Up Again.
Cordes, Colleen
Chronicle of Higher Education, v44 n41 pA30-A31 Jun 19 1998
Congress passed spending measures in fiscal 1988 that included at least $495 million for projects involving specific universities, an increase of over 12% over fiscal 1997. These projects are not subject to competitive review based on merit. Some earmarked money is shared across states or with businesses or other organizations. Opponents of academic earmarks are fewer each year. (MSE)
