In the current fiscal year, the number of earmarks has increased by 32.5 percent over FY 2016, and their total cost has jumped by 33.3 percent. While this year’s $6.8 billion cost remains far below the record of $29 billion set 11 years ago, the total cost of earmarks over the past two years of $11.9 billion represents more than half of the $22 billion in earmarks identified by CAGW since the moratorium took effect.
