WASHINGTON – Today, Senator Mike Lee will offer a motion to keep 2012 spending levels on certain appropriations at 2011 levels.  Submitted as a motion to recommit on the “minibus” spending bill – which funds areas in agriculture, transportation, and commerce, among others – Senator Lee’s motion would save tax payers $10 billion next year.
 
“There’s no question this would save taxpayers just a drop in the deficit-spending bucket,” said Senator Lee.  “However, I am committed to pursuing immediate spending reductions at every opportunity.  While a lot of Senators talk about fiscal responsibility, here’s an opportunity to show they really mean it – even in a small way.”
