Rubio, Daines, Colleagues Introduce Bill to Permanently Ban Earmarks

Mar 1, 2021 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) joined Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) and eight other senators in introducing legislation that would permanently ban earmarks.  
 
“For decades, Congress abused the trust and faith of the American people by handing out earmarks to well-connected businesses, campaign donors, and others who could afford a high-priced lobbyist,” Rubio said. “Those backroom deals led to corruption and waste, and bought votes in Congress for unpopular legislation. We cannot go back to those days, which is why I am proud to join Senator Daines in this effort to ban earmarks once and for all.”
 
“Earmarks do nothing but add to the toxic, swampy culture that DC’s known for,” Daines said. “These back-room deals promote pay-for-play behavior that make lobbyists rich on the taxpayer’s dime. It’s time we get rid of earmarks once and for all.”
 
In addition to Rubio and Daines, Senators Pat Toomey (R-PA), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Joni Ernst (R-IA), James Lankford (R-OK), Mike Lee (R-UT), Ron Johnson (R-WI), Rob Portman (R-OH) and Rand Paul (R-KY) cosponsored the legislation.
