Runyan Votes to Ban Earmarks

November 19, 2010

Renews pledge to tackle reckless spending and runaway debt

John Runyan

Congressman-elect Jon Runyan (NJ-3) released the following statement yesterday following his vote to ban earmarks for the 112th Congress:

“As the next Congressman, I will never apologize for being a strong advocate on behalf of Joint Military Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, Beach Replenishment on LBI, or other worthwhile projects in the 3rd Congressional District that truly merit federal funding.  

 

At the same time, I will never be afraid to take a stand against feel-good spending bills that we simply cannot afford, no matter how well-intentioned or politically popular they may be.  I am proud to report that I took the first step in that direction today by voting with my future colleagues in the House Republican Conference to ban earmarks in the 112th Congress.  I was elected on a mandate to deliver a more fiscally responsible, transparent federal government, and that is exactly what I plan to do in Washington, DC.”
