Today’s Taxpayer News!

NTU joins ten other conservative groups in calling on Congress to open the upcoming defense bill to amendments when it’s introduced on the House floor. Certain House members are concerned about amendments regarding Syria, Egypt, and the NSA surveillance programs. 

Rep. John Culberson introduced an amendment (which later passed) to H.R. 5, the Student Success Act. The amendment, which is supported by NTU, allows states to return unwanted federal education grant money, and directs the returned funds to deficit reduction.

The Denver Post published this op-ed pointing out numerous wasteful subsidies present in the most recent House farm bill. NTU opposed the bill and supports efforts to slim down agricultural handouts.
