Support the Earmark Elimination Act, H.R. 6211

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to support the Earmark Elimination Act, H.R. 6211. Introduced by Reps. Ralph Norman (R-S.C.) and Ted Budd (R-N.C.), this bill would make permanent the temporary moratorium on congressional earmarks put into effect in 2010 by creating a point of order against any provision within a bill that matches the definition of an earmark, and when raised would be stricken absent a two-thirds majority to override.

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.
