Support the Earmark Elimination Act, S. 501

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and ask them to cosponsor the Earmark Elimination Act, S. 501, introduced by Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.) and nine of his colleagues, Sens. Toomey, Lee, Paul, Johnson, Lankford, Ernst, Cruz, Portman, and Rubio. The bill would make permanent the temporary moratorium on congressional earmarks by creating a point of order against any provision in a bill that matches the definition of an earmark.

Will Democrats bring back the corrupt and secretive earmarks?

BY Sarah Anderson

Following the midterm elections, returning members of Congress and newly-elected members alike turn their focus to serving in the 116th Congress. Protecting the interests of their voters and of their constituents more broadly is central to doing so. This includes protecting their constituents’ wallets and ensuring effective and honest use of their federal tax dollars.

Issue Analysis

Earmarks and Pork-Barrel Spending Breed Corruption in Congress

Not long after the 2016 presidential election, House Republicans entertained a rule change proposed by Reps. John Culberson (R-Texas), Mike Kelly (R-Pa.), Mike Rogers (R-Ala.), and Tom Rooney (R-Fla.) to bring back earmarks. The rule change, which likely would have passed if allowed to proceed, was quashed by Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), who felt that reviving the practice sent the wrong message after a “drain the swamp” election.
