American League of Lobbyists Statement on Earmarks

The American League of Lobbyists position on earmarks is very clear: 
ALL is opposed to any action that limits elected officials from fully representing their constituents. ALL respects the constitutional right for any citizen to redress grievances including what is considered best for their state or district. As a separate branch of government, Congress must maintain its Constitutional responsibility in the federal budget process.
