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.”

Honor Utah Veterans Gallery

As we approach Veterans Day on November 11, I am creating a photo gallery display in my Senate office memorializing the service of Utah’s veterans. If you are one of the brave Americans who has served or is serving, or if you are the friend or family member of a veteran - you are invited to share a photograph on Instagram that captures their commitment to country and their willingness to sacrifice.
