The Honorable Lamar Alexander Chairman, Republican Conference United States Senate Washington, DC 20510 Dear Lamar, We are

writing to notify you that we intend to propose the following Resolution at the Republican Conference meeting on November 16: “Resolved, that it is the policy of the Republican Conference that no Member shall request a congressionally directed spending item, limited tax benefit, or limited tariff benefit, as such terms are used in Rule XLIV of the Standing Rules of the Senate for the 112th Congress.” This resolution and the definitions to which it refers are identical to the earmark moratorium that is currently in place among House Republicans, which will be renewed for the 112th Congress. Sincerely,
