Comitological hypothecation.

Hypothecation is eurospeak for earmarking. Not sure if comitological is a word, but this is supposed to mean that it takes place in a governmental committee.

If we ever get around to capping or taxing carbon, there’s gonna be a whole lotta comitological hypothecation goin on in Congress.

H/T Dallas.
