Congresswoman Angie Craig is the first freshman member of the Minnesota Congressional delegation to get a bill to the president.
Craig co-authored the bipartisan bill that creates new protections to keep the federal government from making overpayments to other governments and programs.
In 2018, those payments totaled over $151 billion.
“At the federal government level, as we well know, there’s just not enough process control and best practices learned. So it is a bipartisan bill, it’s common sense. It should have been done a long time ago,” said Craig.
The bill has passed the House and Senate and according to Craig, it’s supported by President Trump.
