CHEYENNE, wyo – U.S. Rep. Cynthia Lummis says President Barack Obama's proposed federal pay freeze doesn't go far enough.
The Wyoming Republican says a commitment to austerity can only be taken seriously if Washington halts the unchecked growth of government in addition to a freeze on pay.
Lummis has introduced legislation that she says would result in a smaller, leaner federal work force and save taxpayers about $35 billion over 10 years.
