Daines Introduces Resolution Condemning Swampy Earmarks

Senator Steve Daines today joined his colleagues in introducing a resolution slamming Congress’ obsession with reckless earmarks.

“Earmarks represent the worst of Congress. They are slimy backroom deals that make lobbyists rich on the taxpayer’s dime. Washington must reject these toxic deals and return to fiscal sanity.” said Daines.

The resolution condemns the use of “congressionally directed spending” and “community project funding,” known as “earmarks,” to direct and appropriate taxpayer dollars in any form. Additionally, it seeks to permanently restore the previous ban on the use of earmarks and affirms the need for Congress to reign in overspending to help curb the inflation crisis that is crippling Montana families.
