Defense bill provides home for earmarks

Abstract:
Rep. John Culberson, R-Houston, nabbed a $4 million earmark in defense appropriations for the Houston-based Alliance for NanoHealth, a seven-institution consortium in the Texas Medical Center that is developing technologies that, among other things, will help detect cancer and allow doctors to use drugs more effectively.

Culberson, who sits on the Appropriations Committee and whose district includes much of the Medical Center, said he added the health care research funding to the defense bill in part because "it is a larger pot of money." But he said that the research is also relevant to the military because the technology could be used to trace biological or chemical agents.
