Republicans unable to block Pelosi $200M budget earmark

Republicans were unsuccessful in their attempts to block a $200 million earmark for a park in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) district. On Thursday, House Republicans proposed amendments to the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill in an effort to divert funds from the 1,500 acre Presidio Park and Golf Course.
