Crapo, Risch to Support Earmark Moratorium

Idaho Senators Mike Crapo and Jim Risch announced today that they will vote in favor of a resolution that will place a moratorium on earmarks in the upcoming 112th Congress. A vote on the resolution, sponsored by Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina), is expected on Tuesday in the U.S. Senate Republican Conference, along with several other fiscal policy proposals aimed at reversing out-of-control government spending.
