Boehner, Cantor Offer Earmark Reform Resolution
GOP Rules Change Would Set Up Spending Reform Panel, Place Moratorium on Earmark Requests Until Report is Filed
WASHINGTON, DC - House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) and Republican Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) today filed a proposed amendment to House Republican Conference rules. If adopted, the rules change would establish a House Republican earmark reform panel and place a moratorium on earmark requests by House Republican Members until the panel has filed a report with recommendations for changing Washington's broken spending practices.
