Stopping Slush Funds

September 7, 2016
Press Release

Congressman Lamborn released the following statement in support of H.R. 5063, the Stop Settlement Slush Funds Act: 

"The Obama Justice Department has been delivering more pay-offs than it has been delivering justice. That's why I voted today in support of the Stop Settlements Slush Funds Act. This important legislation blocks a clear example of Executive Branch overreach and ensures that settlement money paid out from financial institutions goes to victims rather than to left-wing special interest groups and organizations. By taking this important step, Congress will reaffirm its appropriations oversight functions while ending this dubious practice of funneling money to activist groups." 

- Congressman Doug Lamborn (CO-05)
