U.S. Sen. David Vitter today applauded the Louisiana House of Representatives vote to block the Jindal administration's attempt to use one-time money to balance Louisiana's budget.

"I really congratulate House conservatives for standing tall against the use of one-time money to balance the state budget," Vitter said. "That practice is just kicking the can down the road---the sort of bad spending policy I'm constantly fighting in Washington that creates a real fiscal mess over time."

Vitter has been actively engaged on this issue, reaching out to legislators and providing encouragement to make the tough decision to push for fiscal reform.
