Rep. Jordan on WHIO: Cracking Down on Lavish Conference Spending
March 11, 2013
Congressman Jim Jordan (R-Urbana) and Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-CA) joined efforts on a bill aiming to put an end to lavish spending on conferences for federal employees. The bill, H.R. 859, responds to testimony the pair heard in the Oversight and Government Reform Committee about excessive spending on conferences by the General Services Administration (GSA) and other federal agencies.
