The conference report for the fiscal year 2008 defense appropriations bill contains a massive number of earmarks – 2,049 to be exact.
The total cost of these earmarks is $4,982,309,000. Twenty-four earmarks costing $59 million were "airdropped" into the conference report.
These earmarks were considered by neither the House nor the Senate and were immaculately conceived in the conference report.
The complete list of earmarks can be found on page 500.
