Fiscal Year 2011 Appropriations Requests

FISCAL YEAR 2011 APPROPRIATIONS REQUESTS

THE THREE QUESTIONS

To be successful in running any business, and in guiding our federal government, there are three essential questions that must be answered. Will it work? Can we afford it? And most importantly, is it the right (ethical) thing to do?

To answer these questions, it requires good judgment and in many cases a lifetime of experience, all of which I used in determining which federal programs and projects to personally endorse. And I will proudly stand by every project that my constituents and I have requested.

TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY

This is the most transparent process in the history of the United States Congress.

Transparency and accountability are the hallmarks of this process. You deserve to know exactly how your money is being used and who has requested the use of your tax dollars. For each project I submitted, I also disclose the amount of money being requested, the name and address of the entity that could possibly receive federal funding, a description of the investment, and a signed certificate attesting to the fact that neither I or anyone in my family would benefit financially. This certification will also be available on the Internet before I vote on appropriation bills. Additionally, should funding be approved for a project or program I submit, my name will appear next to it within the bill authorizing the funding.

As part of the reforms, the appropriate federal agency will be given 20 days to confirm that the proposed project is eligible for funding. For-profit entities are no longer eligible to receive any funding under this process.  This will reduce the influence of corporate special interests on the appropriations process and create a more open and transparent manner of serving the people I represent.

FUNDING REQUESTS

For your benefit, I have listed below all of the federal funding requests I will make for appropriations in fiscal year 2011.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you, your family and your community.

Sincerely,

Steve Kagen, M.D. Member of Congress
