Rand Paul Refunds Unused Office Budget to the Treasury

Sen. Rand Paul is taking his own message of fiscal conservatism to heart, returning about 17 percent of his Senate office budget to the U.S. Treasury.

“It’s the only budget I control,” Paul (R-Ky.) said on Wednesday at a news conference in Louisville, Ky., according to a Thursday report in The Courier-Journal, a Louisville-based publication. “It’s not enough, but it’s a start.”

Paul, who is set to return $600,000 from his $3.5 million office budget, has returned six-figure sums before.
