It appears that the House isn't too concerned about removing earmarks. Given the opportunity to remove 12 earmarks from a transportation bill, the House voted last Wednesday to support each one.

Reading between the lines, the line item veto isn't needed because, according to CRS, such earmarks are invalid and they should be stripped from legislation before it gets to the President.
