Senator McCaskill claims she doesnt request or accept earmarks but what do you call this press release from her Senate website?

“Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx announced $4.85 million in grants to six Marine Highway projects along the waterways of 17 states and the District of Columbia, as part of the Maritime Administration’s Marine Highway Program. McCaskill leant her support to the project, the goal of which is to expand the use of the country’s navigable waterways to relieve landside congestion, reduce air emissions, and generate other public benefits by increasing the efficiency of the surface transportation system. McCaskill supported the Water Resources Reform Development Act, which would authorize the Army Corps of Engineers to study and construct water projects to maintain navigable channels, and reduce flood and storm damage.”
