Adams Leads Effort to Continue Earmark Ban in 113th Congress


Location: Washington, DC

Representative Sandy Adams (FL-24) and 56 of her colleagues sent a letter to Speaker of the House John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi today reiterating their support for a continuation of the earmark ban in the next Congress.

"The American people sent an historic class of new representatives to Congress in 2010 with a mandate to change the way Washington, D.C. works and to fix what is wrong with the federal government," said Adams. "As a proud member of that freshman class, I know we cannot begin to address our nation's debt and deficit problems until we get a handle on the runaway spending and special interest earmarks that incentivize members to vote for bad policy. With a $15.7 trillion debt, Congress owes it to American taxpayers to be responsible stewards of their hard-earned money. This letter serves as a message to the leaders of the Republican and Democratic caucuses that the earmark ban should continue next Congress."
