Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Shortly after being sworn in today as a member of the 112th Congress today, Congressman Jack Kingston (R-GA) began delivering on the promises he made to constituents. Step one was a vote to change the way the House works. Step two is cutting its budget.

"We're off to a good start," Kingston said of the new Republican majority. "We've cut our own budget and reformed the way the House works. Now for the real task at hand -- getting our country's fiscal house in order. I look forward to the challenge."

In addition to nuts and bolts changes to the rules governing the House, Republicans will bring up an across-the-board reduction in the House's budget meaning every member, every committee and every member of leadership will see their budget reduced without exception.

The Appropriations Committee, of which Kingston is a senior member, will reduce its own budget by 9% - going above and beyond the rest of the House.
