Fighting for Florida

Senator Rubio joined with six of his colleagues as a co-sponsor of S.AMDT.1555, The Earmark Elimination Act of 2011.

S.Amdt. 1555 like the Earmark Elimination Act, would permanently end earmarks and could be introduced during upcoming debates on any number of issues.  Otherwise, the Senate Democrats would have to call up the bill itself and make it the focus of debate, something unlikely to happen with them in charge. Senator Rubio will continue to work to ensure the current freeze on earmarks is made permanent.
