House Committee Docks GSA
J.J. Jackson | June 21, 2012
The GSA may wind up with less money next year.Â The scandal ridden agency is under fire in the Republican lead House and is, as of right now, having some of its funding stripped.Â Of course, there is a long way to go before a final budget is proposed and all this could change.Â Plus, we all know the Senate, controlled by Harry Reid and the Democrats, never passes budgets anyway.
The fiscal 2013 budget approved by the House Appropriations Committee provides funding for the White House and such federal agencies as the Treasury Department, the Small Business Administration and the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The $21 billion budget is $376 million below last yearâ€™s level and $2 billion below what President Obama requested.
The bill also is $3 billion below fiscal 2010 â€“ the last year Democrats controlled Congress.
