Press Release

Republican Congressman Jeff Flake, who represents Arizona's Sixth District, today urged Congress not to include pork projects when it considers an economic stimulus bill early next year.

"If pork-barrel spending stimulated the economy, we wouldn't be in a recession right now," said Flake. "Pro-growth tax cuts would be a more effective economic stimulus than pork projects."

The U.S. Conference of Mayors has released a list of pork projects that are "ready to go" if funding is included in the stimulus.
