Concurrent Resolution on the Budget for Fiscal Year 2014

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. FLAKE. I have not yet delivered my maiden speech. I will be very brief. I plan to withdraw this amendment, and I understand there will be a point of order raised against germaneness with a 60-vote threshold I can't overcome. I just want to make the point this body has done good work in the last 2 years on a bipartisan basis to get rid of the scourge of earmarks and the abuse of earmarks which has taken place in both this Chamber and the House.

This amendment would have simply been for a point of order to be raised if earmarks were contained in legislation. I would encourage this body to continue the practice which has occurred over the past 2 years and not have congressional earmarks. I thank you for your indulgence.

I ask unanimous consent to withdraw my amendment.
