    As appropriators get down to business on fiscal 2016 spending, one House Republican is asking key players in the deal-making process not to compromise on their proposal to strip funding for the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Commission. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner , R-Wis., criticized the commission's approach to planning a memorial park on a four-acre site in Southwest Washington, D.C., as "deeply flawed and highly contentious," in a letter to House Appropriations Chairman Harold Rogers , R-Ky., and ranking member Nita M. Lowey , D-N.Y. The Aug. 21 missive, obtained by CQ Roll Call, slams the 11-member commission - which includes three senators and four congressmen - for its "complete disregard of critics" to architect Frank Gehry's design. 4 comments
