Nunnelee returns from Washington after settling in

TUPELO – North Mississippi’s newest congressman returned from Washington, D.C. last week filled with optimism after his first month in office.

U.S. Rep. Alan Nunnelee, R-Miss., said he’s impressed by the House GOP leadership and expects the 112th Congress to listen more to the demands of the American people than its predecessor.

Already, he said, leaders required legislation to go public 72 hours before a vote; cut its own operations budget by 5 percent; and gave representatives more time to spend in their districts instead of in D.C.
