Senators Mark Udall, Michael Bennet vote for earmark ban in Senate; ban fails 39 to 56
Colorado's Senators Mark Udall and Michael Bennet voted with most Republicans and against most Democrats when they voted for a ban on earmarks in the Senate. The ban failed 39 to 56. But in the 112th Congress, House Repubicans will have the power to reject any bills that include earmarks added to bills by Senators. Will the House GOP enforce their ban on earmarks on the Senate? In any case, Udall and Bennet voted for fiscal responsibility.
