WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator-Elect John Boozman (R-AR) announced his support for an earmark moratorium in the 112th Congress.

"I want to be part of the solution to put our fiscal house back in order and that requires controlling government spending. After reviewing the Senate earmark proposals, the first step to deliver what Americans have asked for is to abstain from this spending. While not all earmarks are bad, it is clear that the system is broken and in need of reform. Therefore, I believe a moratorium on all earmarks is the best way to show that Washington is ready to make difficult spending decisions," Boozman said.

Boozman also voted for a moratorium on earmarks during the 111th Congress.
