GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) – We’re working to let you see how your members of the United States Congress are spending your tax dollars meant to run their offices.
It ranges from a minimum of $1.4 million to a maximum of $1.6 million per year, per member of the United States House.
So we begin with a breakdown of the travel totals of three members of the US House. USA and we threw in a quarter of Montana as a comparison.
Let’s start with Rep. Lauren Boebert (R) of Colorado’s 3rd district.
Federal records found by following this link show he reported spending $79,724 on travel from January to December 2021. Fifth District Rep. Doug Lamborn (R) reported spending $83,962 during the same time period. 2nd District Rep. Joe Neuguse (D) counted $31,786. We pitched Montana’s only Rep. Matt Rosendale (R) as a comparison of longer commute routes to DC. His office totaled $123,239 in travel money.
For the first quarter of 2022, Boebert reported $17,025.92, Lamborn $12,495 and Neuguse $5,059.
