Press Release: Sali Opposes Bill to Boost Spending for Congress, Legislative Offices

June 29th, 2007 by Halli

Rep. Bill Sali represents Idaho’s First Congressional District

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congress voted to put its budget ahead of the family budget by approving a 4.1 percent increase in spending for the federal government’s legislative branch and authorizing a fourth office building for Congress. U.S. Rep. Bill Sali voted against the bill and supported an alternate measure that would have held legislative branch appropriations at the current level. Sali, a leader in the effort to bring fiscal restraint to federal spending, said the funding increase measure takes another $123 million from taxpayers who are working to pay for their own families’ needs.

“Gasoline prices are up. Food prices are up. College tuition is up. Every Idaho family has to live within its budget. The federal government must learn to live within its means. And there is no better place for Congress to start, than with itself.” said Sali. “Congress’ priorities are way out of wack, which explains why just 14 percent of Americans have confidence in the work that it is doing.”

H.R. 2771 passed 216-176.
