(Washington, DC) Congressman Rod Blum (R-Iowa) released the following statement regarding his role as the Republican lead on Congresswoman Gwen Graham’s (D-Florida) bill to eliminate taxpayer-funded first class flights and long term personal vehicle leases for members of Congress:

“This is not a partisan issue: members of Congress don’t need taxpayer funded perks like first class travel and long term car leases to do their job. America’s founders never intended for public servants to live a life of luxury paid for by everyday Americans. That’s why I’ve made it a high priority to back legislation which reforms Congress and ensures good stewardship of U.S. taxpayer dollars.”

Blum has supported numerous other measures to reform Congress in his first nine weeks in office, including co-sponsoring legislation on enacting term limits, prohibiting members’ automatic pay increases, and eliminating Congressional pensions

Rod Blum is the Republican Congressman in Iowa’s 1st District. He is a member of the Budget and Oversight & Government Reform Committees.
