The Hill has this report.
"A bipartisan team of senators introduced legislation Monday to rescind funds for so-called 'orphaned earmarks.'
The legislation offered by Sens. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) and Mark Begich (D-Alaska) would retract earmarks that remain 90 percent or more unused nine years after funds have first been appropriated. Recovered funds would be used to reduce the nation’s deficit."
