ALG urges support of Mulvaney amendment to HR 5325

June 6, 2012, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today issued the following statement supporting an amendment to HR 5325 by Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) that would cut $3.1 billion from the budget:

"The Mulvaney amendment to HR 5325 would save taxpayers an additional $3.1 billion from the energy and water budget while protecting critical functions such as the Army Corps of Engineers and nuclear safety. These cuts are the type of low-hanging fruit that should be easy for the House to enact, and represent the types of cuts that a majority of members have supported in the past. If House Republicans are truly committed to restoring order to our nation's fiscal house, Mulvaney's $3.1 billion of sensible savings will be enacted post-haste."
