Tenney proposed $48 million in earmarks for fiscal year 2024, including:

  • $6 million to Genesee County for “Genesee County Water Security and Resiliency – Prole Road Transmission Main”
  • $6 million to City of Canandaigua for “Canandaigua Water Plant”
  • $6 million to Development Authority of the North Country for “Phase I Army Water Line (AWL) Pipeline Replacement Project”

These are earmark requests which may or may not survive the legislative process to becoming law. Most representatives from both parties requested earmarks for fiscal year 2024. Across representatives who requested earmarks, the median total amount requested for this fiscal year was $39 million.

Earmarks are federal expenditures, tax benefits, or tariff benefits requested by a legislator for a specific entity. Rather than being distributed through a formula or competitive process administered by the executive branch, earmarks may direct spending where it is most needed for the legislator's district. All earmark requests in the House of Representatives are published online for the public to review. We don’t have earmark requests for senators. The fiscal year begins on October 1 of the prior calendar year. Source: Background: Earmark Disclosure Rules in the House
