ALG to Congress: Pass spending into spring and go home

Nov. 14, 2016, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging Congress to end the lame duck session as soon as possible after passing a short-term continuing resolution into early spring:

“The single most important decisions for Congress in the lame duck session are to get in and get out, and do a short term continuing resolution that will allow the new Trump administration and Republican majorities in Congress to assert their spending priorites this coming spring. No criminal justice reform. No big omnibus spending bill deals with Obama.

“Every day Congress stays in session limits the number of regulations that can be repealed easily through the Congressional Review Act. So, pass the spending into spring, and go home.”
