Radio Kenai: Begich joins group to better manage taxpayer money

U.S. Sen. Mark Begich and a bipartisan group of senators have introduced legislation designed to better manage taxpayer funds by assisting federal agencies in the disposal and management of federal buildings and facilities.

The State’s Junior Senator said that it’s crazy the federal government is wasting money on property we don’t even use, which is why he is glad they reached a bipartisan agreement on this common sense bill, saying that instead of wasting dollars, this will help us actually pay down the national debt and deficit.

Begich said that we need better management of our taxpayer dollars across our government agencies and this bill will help speed up the disposal of unneeded federal property.
