The Salt Lake Tribune asked its members of Congress for information on their earmarked funding requests but got a positive response from only one of the five. Sens. Orrin Hatch and Bob Bennett said they would release information only on those special funding requests that prove successful. Reps. Chris Cannon and Rob Bishop refused to identity the earmarks they backed. Only Rep. Jim Matheson released his requests – 50 projects totaling more than $100 million. (3/31/08)
