Earmark Reform

Corporations and special interests should not be able to buy favors from Congress. All too often, spending bills passed by Congress put public funds to work for specific projects that reward the businesses and individuals that give the most money to congressional campaigns. These specific appropriations – called earmarks – should be limited to projects that serve the public interest, not doled out to enrich private interests at the public’s expense.
