Rep. James Renacci (Ohio) has spent 78.5 percent of his annual allowances in the first three quarters of 2017. That's nearly 5 percent more than the next highest spender, Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.). After the third quarter mark, other members have so far spent an average of only 63.9 percent of their annual budgets.
If Renacci keeps up those spending habits in the year's final quarter, he'll have overspent his allowances by nearly 4.7 percent - more than $60,000. Members who go over budget are legally obligated to personally repay expenses to the Treasury Department.
