NC Reps Cut Back on Snacks, Bottled Water in ‘11


Members of North Carolina’s congressional delegation enjoyed fewer soft drinks and munchies in the first quarter of 2011 than during the same period last year.  Tar Heel lawmakers spent $5,591 in taxpayer funds on food, beverages, and bottled water during the first quarter of 2011, compared to $10,186 during the first quarter of 2010, according to official congressional disbursement records.  The 13 representatives in the delegation also scaled back the total they spent to run their congressional offices — from $4.1 million in the first quarter of 2010 to $3.7 million in first quarter of 2011.  See who spent how much on what at CarolinaJournal.com
