The Hill reports that a proposal for a three year ban on earmarks is not likely to pass.  Senate Majority leader Harry Reid negotiated with Republican leaders to bring the proposal to a vote that would require 67 votes for passage.  Most Republicans are expected to support the proposal as well as Democrats running for re-election in 2012.
