Nevada Lawmakers Defend Vegas At GSA Hearings

(Washington, DC)  — Nevada lawmakers have defended Las Vegas’ honor during the final day of congressional hearings into the GSA’s spending scandal.  In letters to a Senate committee yesterday, Senator Harry Reid said the issue was not about Las Vegas or “where people choose to hold conferences and meetings,” but “the need to spend taxpayer dollars wisely”.  Senator Dean Heller took to the Senate floor to say no Nevada town “should be singled out because of poor judgement” by the GSA.  The lavish junket at the M Resort in 2010 has led to firings, resignations and suspensions at the agency.
