Thomas Wants Smaller Government

Washington, D.C. – Holding a 1,700 page notebook listing government programs, Wyoming Senator Craig Thomas told his colleagues this week to reduce the size of the federal government. He says each of the programs needs to be evaluated to see if they are current and still doing the job they were intended to do. Thomas says the recent death of President Reagan makes now a good time to remember how he believed in smaller, rather than bigger government.
