Pork-Barrel Spending on Academe Reaches a Record $797-Million.

Chronicle of Higher Education, v45 n46 pA44-A47 Jul 23 1999
For the 1999 fiscal year, Congress earmarked specific spending measures that included at least $797 million for projects involving colleges and universities, a 51% increase over 1998. Earmarks are seen by some as inequitable because they are not subject to competitive, merit-based reviews typically used by federal agencies to distribute money for research, facilities, and other projects.
