U.S. Rep. William L. Owens, D-Plattsburgh, announced Thursday he will return roughly $75,000 of his 2012 Congressional office budget to the U.S. Treasury. This is the fourth year he has returned surplus office funds to the government. The funds returned total more than $400,000.

Mr. Owens said in a news release he has also cosponsored legislation to cut his salary and has voted twice to freeze cost-of-living-adjustments for members of Congress.
