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."
