House passes bill to cut 5 percent of its budgets

The bill cuts $1 million from all House leadership offices, $8.1 million from committee budgets and a total of $26.1 million for members' offices, for a grand total of $35.2 million, according to the bill.

"This is a good starting point," bill sponsor Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.) said Thursday morning on C-SPAN's "Washington Journal." 

"That's just a start, and there are other things we'll find over time that the House Administration Committee will pursue."
