Mike Simpson Rewards Big Campaign Donors

Washington, D.C.—Campaign finance watchdog Public Campaign Action Fund blasted Rep. Mike Simpson (R-Idaho) for leading his subcommittee’s efforts to provide hand outs to big money donors as part of the appropriations process. Simpson is chair of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies, which this afternoon passed an appropriations bill that would 1) restrict funding to protect public health and the environment, 2) expand offshore drilling, and 3) weaken rules on greenhouse gas emissions and pollution standards.
