WASHINGTON, D.C. â€“ A study released Wednesday by the National Taxpayers Union Foundation (NTUF) revealed that the legislative agenda of Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.) during the 113th Congressâ€™ First Session would have cut a net $101.4 billion from the federal budget if enacted.
Additionally, the study found that Senator Coats was one of only 17 members of the Senate to propose more spending decreases than increases.
â€śMaking tough fiscal choices is the only way to stabilize the nationâ€™s long-term financial future,â€ť said Coats. â€śThis is why I came back to the Senate, and I will continue to work on solutions to our fiscal crisis.â€ť
The NTUF study found that all legislation proposed during the 113th Congressâ€™ First Session would have added a net $1.09 trillion to the federal budget if enacted.
