The House should be commended for the unanimous decision today to cut their office budgets across the board.

By passing the HR 3 (the Housekeeping Resolution) for the 82nd Legislature, legislators lowered their operational budget allocated for salaries and other office expenses for 10% for months when the Legislature is in session, and by 14% for all other months.

This should serve as an example to all state agencies looking to reduce their budget during this legislative session.
