ABSTRACT
The article reports on the suggestion of Jim Nussle, Office of Management and Budget (OMB) director, that U.S. President George W. Bush could veto the fiscal year 2009 defense authorization bill over a provision rejecting an earmark reform initiative. Executive order 13457 bans federal agencies from spending money on earmark in committee report language. Democrats and Republicans on the House Armed Services Committee (HASC) have defended the move to make the bill exempt from the executive order.
