Conservative Lawmaker’s Bill Would Push Back Against Obama’s Executive Overreach
Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo., is still angry about the omnibus spending bill that passed through Congress more than two months ago.
Buck is frustrated—not only by what Congress included in the massive $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill, but also by what Congress intentionally left out. He wants the legislature to reassert its rule-making authority by passing several conservative policy riders designed to push back against executive overreach.
That’s why the House freshman class president says he’s introduced the Article I Consolidated Appropriations Amendment Act.
“We need to keep fighting for the provisions in this bill, however long it takes,” Buck told The Daily Signal. “Our responsibility to reassert the constitutional power of Congress does not end simply because it is a new legislative year or even with a new president.”
