Miller and Harper: Turning EAC Into a Scene From Weekend at Bernie's

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Today, the Committee on House Administration Chairman Candice Miller, R-Mich., and Committee member Rep. Gregg Harper, R-Miss., issued the following statement ahead of the Senate confirmation hearing to place two commissioners at the obsolete Election Assistance Commission (EAC):

"For the past two years, the EAC has limped along without purpose or benefit, costing taxpayers over 11 million each year. It's a zombie agency that epitomizes bureaucracy and government waste, which is why this Committee and the House have voted multiple times to shut it down -- but not the Senate. To the contrary, Wednesday, the Democratic-controlled Senate is holding a confirmation hearing to place commissioners there for the first time in two years.

"The EAC is dead, and having two commissioners carrying it between them like a scene from Weekend At Bernie's doesn't make it any more alive, or any more useful. Unfortunately, since the Senate changed its rules, it could approve these nominations on a purely partisan basis and continue to force taxpayers to subsidize government waste."
