Congressman Lucas Supports Stop Government Abuse Legislation (Frank Lucas)
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas today released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed multiple pieces of legislation this week to help “Stop Government Abuse” and restore certainty for Americans.
“This week, we worked in the House to pass another series of bills to address government abuse and rein in the Obama Administration’s executive overreach. As Americans worry about the sluggish economy and lack of jobs, it is important that we work in Congress to help reduce burdens on families across the country. I am very pleased the legislation we passed this week helps accomplish this goal.
“For instance, I voted in favor of H.R. 1423, the Taxpayers Right-to-Know Act, sponsored by my colleague from Oklahoma, Congressman James Lankford. This legislation restores accountability and protects American taxpayers by requiring every federal agency to provide an annual report of programs, costs and expenditures. Taxpayers fund these agencies, and they have the right to know how their money is being spent. I am glad this legislation will help reduce wasteful spending and create government transparency.
