D.C.-Based Watchdog Group Calls Out Sen. Reid About Government Waste Bill

A government watchdog group is calling out U.S. Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Citizens Against Government Waste accuse Reid of blocking a bill to help inspectors general better manage waste, fraud, abuse and mismanagement and not explaining why.

Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa tried to bring the bill to the floor in December, but Reid declined.
