May 02, 1997

In the April 18, 1997 edition of the SSTI Weekly Digest, we reported on Congressional earmarks for research projects involving specific universities. The totals for six states were incorrect and, as a result, the rankings for five states were also incorrect.

Hawaii should have been reported as receiving $99,241,000 in earmarks; Pennsylvania as receiving $42,185,000; Texas as receiving $20,553,000; Alabama as receiving $19,900,000; and, Illinois as receiving $8,025,000.

New York should have been ranked as 10, New Mexico as 11, Texas as 12, Alabama as 13, and Minnesota as 14.
