U.S. SEN. WAYNE ALLARD RETURNS MONEY TO TAXPAYERS FOR 18TH STRAIGHT YEAR

Colorado Lawmaker Has Returned More Than $4.6 Million While Serving in Congress

U.S. Sen. Wayne Allard (R-Colo.) announced today that, for the 18th consecutive year, he has returned money from his congressional office operating budget to the taxpayers. For the 2008 fiscal year, Allard returned $151,210 from the operating budget to the U.S. Treasury.

"During my tenure in Congress, I have tried to lead through example," said Allard. "I have been entrusted by the citizens of Colorado to be a careful steward of their tax dollars. I am proud that I have lived up to their trust for the 18th year in a row."

Since being elected to Congress in 1990, Allard has returned more than $4.6 million from his congressional office operating budget. In the past four years alone, Allard has returned more than $1.5 million.

Allard says that returning a portion of his Senate office budget to the Treasury has given him greater credibility when he questions federal agencies about spending and budget priorities.
