Lummis Joins Amendment to Offset Hurricane Sandy Relief Funds
January 15, 2013
On Tuesday, U.S. Representative Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.) joined U.S. Representatives Mick Mulvaney (R-SC), Tom McClintock (R-CA) and Jeff Duncan (R-SC) in offering an amendment to the Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013. The amendment would have offset the $17 billion cost of immediate Hurricane Sandy-related disaster assistance by trimming the 2013 budgets of federal agencies by 1.63%.
