Earmarks are back. Here’s what lawmakers want Congress to spend money on in Pa. and South Jersey

If lawmakers have their way, Congress may soon set aside $1 million for a sports and recreation facility in North Philadelphia and $500,000 to help people with mental health problems or addiction avoid incarceration in Bucks County. There’d be $5.5 million for a new police and fire facility near Scranton, $1.5 million to restore the Lansdowne Theater in Delaware County and spur economic development, and $1 million for a building to house a new nursing program at Lebanon Valley College outside Harrisburg.
