WASHINGTON, DC – House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today in support of the “Reduce Unnecessary Spending Act of 2011,” introduced today by House Budget Committee Ranking Member Chris Van Hollen.

“Democrats are committed to restoring fiscal discipline and cutting spending, and the bill introduced today will provide another tool for us to do that. Under expedited rescission, Congress and the President can work together to cut wasteful, duplicative spending. I hope my Republican colleagues back up their calls for reduced spending with action and join us in moving this bill forward.”
