WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate agreed Thursday to cut off money to the decade-long investigation of former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Henry Cisneros, which has cost nearly $21 million.
Legislation that provides money for U.S. operations in Iraq and Afghanistan includes an amendment sponsored by Sea Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., to stop spending by June I on the probe led by independent counsel David Barrett The Senate added the amendment on a voice vote.
A report by the Government Accountability Office, Congress’ investigative ann, shows Barrett spent $1.26 million during the six months ending Sept. 30,2004. The largest expenses were for salaries and benefits and contracted services. Dorgan’s amendment would require a detailed report on spending by July.
Differences between the House and Senate versions of the U.S. operations bill mast be resolved in conference committee.
Cisneros admitted in 1999 that, when being considered for a Cabinet job, he lied to the FBI about how much he paid a former mistress.
