(AREA) -- The Committee on House Administration Chair Candice Miller and Representative Todd Rokita of Indiana joined the effort this week to save taxpayers nearly $500 million and return $199 million to the Treasury for deficit reduction by terminating the obsolete Election Assistance Commission and eliminating the Presidential Election Campaign Fund. Chairwoman Miller says that the bill is small, but a necessary step to prove we are serious about our nation's financial health. The country is facing an astonishing $16 trillion debt. Miller says simply increasing the debt limit, again, without making much-needed cuts would be wildly irresponsible. Congresswoman Candice Miller was recently appointed Chair of the Committee on House Administration and serves Michigan's 10th Congressional District, including northern Macomb County, a portion of Tuscola County, and St. Clair, Sanilac, Huron and Lapeer counties.
