Bono Votes for Increased Fiscal Discipline
House Additionally Provides Permanent Death Tax Relief
In an effort to control federal spending, Congresswoman Mary Bono (CA-45) voted today to approve the Legislative Line Item Veto Act of 2006. The measure gives the president increased authority to remove unnecessary or wasteful earmarks from spending bills.
"Congress must stand for fiscal discipline and reform," said Congresswoman Bono. "This measure is necessary to increase transparency and accountability in federal spending and discourage wasteful and unnecessary spending."
