The $1.2 trillion government spending package passed in November contained earmarks that drew criticism from conservatives.

It allocated $400,000 requested by Sen. Tammy Baldwin for the Briarpatch Youth Services group, which runs an LGBTQ program for minors aged 13-18 that provides clothing and events without parental consent.

Another $400,000 went to a New Jersey LGBTQ group for “binders and gaffs” used by transgender people.

Additionally, $1.8 million was allocated at the request of Rhode Island senators for a women’s hospital performing elective abortions up to 22 weeks.

The allocations prompted concern from former VP Mike Pence’s group that taxpayers were funding centers encouraging children to transition without parental knowledge.

“Releasing bill text in the middle of the night is how our government gets locked into funding gaffs and binders for confused kids,” Former Vice President Mike Pence’s Advancing American Freedom (AAF) policy director John Shelton said. “American taxpayers are funding centers that encourage children to transition without their parents’ knowledge.”

“The group provides ‘binders and gaffs’ — two types of undergarments used by transgender people to hide breasts or male genitalia,” the report stated.

House Speaker Mike Johnson passed the bill despite objections from 112 House Republicans, violating the Hastert Rule requiring a majority of the majority party’s support.
