The Ag Minute: Democratic Leadership Hides Behind Failed Policies By Proposing More Spending
Tamara Hinton (202) 225-0184
WASHINGTON – This week during The Ag Minute, Ranking Member Frank Lucas discusses how the Democratic leadership is proposing to spend more money and create yet another federal program to do the job of other existing federal programs. This week the U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote on H.R. 4785, the Rural Energy Savings Program Act, which would authorize $5 billion worth of new federal government energy efficient programs. The issue is that there are countless other home energy efficiency programs already in existence.
