Senator Johanns e-Update
January 23, 2013

With difficult cuts needed to rein in out-of-control spending, we must ensure that all the dollars our government spends are wise, efficient and thoroughly vetted. That is why today, I cosponsored the Earmark Elimination Act to make permanent a Congressional ban on earmarks. 

In the past, earmarks have funded nonessential projects with taxpayer dollars because the process was not open, transparent, or merit-based. While these earmarks have been banned for several years, the ban should be made permanent. 

We must focus on getting our fiscal house in order by carefully examining how taxpayer dollars are used. These tough choices are required so our children and grandchildren do not suffer because Congress refused to act responsibly.
