Assunto:  earmark meaning?
 
Mensagem:  to earmark = to give funds with a specific amount to be spent on specific services or for specific purposes

Let's say that you donate $1,000,000 to the PUCRS, with $500,000 earmarked for the purchase of books for the library. 

The context is not clear.  Perhaps the politicians are talking about "earmarking" money to be spent on projects in Kentucky, and perhaps they are not.
