Chairman Hastings Praises Resolution to Rein In Wasteful Government Spending


WASHINGTON, D.C., January 25, 2011 - House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Doc Hastings (WA-04) released the following statement praising House passage of H. Res. 38, a resolution to reduce non-security spending to Fiscal Year 2008 levels or less:

“This resolution is an important step towards bringing much needed fiscal sanity back to Washington D.C. Since 2007, Democrats have increased the national debt by over five trillion dollars and the Department of the Interior budget has increased by over 20 percent. This reckless spending is threatening American jobs, our ability to remain economically competitive and the livelihood of future generations. With this vote, Republicans have clearly expressed our commitment to reining in spending back to pre-stimulus levels.

“There is still much more that needs to be done to get our fiscal house in order. The Natural Resources Committee has made reducing spending a top priority and will look for more ways to cut unnecessary government spending from programs under the Committee’s jurisdiction.”
