June 21, 2016, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement to support an amendment by U.S. Reps. Sean Duffy (R-Wis.) and Tom Marino (R-Pa.) that would decrease funding to the Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) account by $20.7 million
“The Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) account at the Department of Justice has received $20.7 in illegal monies from legal settlements. The Duffy amendment will offset these illegal increases in the program outside of the congressional appropriations process by the Obama Administration. Only Congress should appropriate money, not the Department of Justice through legal shakedowns.”
