Titus announces earmark requests

Dina Titus, Nevada's newest congresswoman, has become the first in Nevada to publish her list of requested earmarks.

The list totals about 40 projects for Southern Nevada and costs $100 million.

The earmarks include money for "green" investments, health care improvements, public safety, infrastructure investments, education, and others.

We applaud Congresswoman Titus for posting online the earmarks she is requesting. Regardless of your opinion on earmarks, posting their details online is a good development for transparency in Nevada.

Update: Here are Shelley Berkley's earmark requests.

I'll update this post to keep you up to date when the rest of the Nevada delegation posts their earmark requests online.
