WASHINGTON -- Three key staffers have resigned from Republican Rep. Steven Palazzo's office
during the congressman's first four months in office.
The resignations of Palazzo's chief of staff, communications director and legislative director come at a
critical time for the Mississippi Republican freshman. House members, who return to work next week, face
increasing pressure to approve a fiscal 2012 budget and reach agreement on raising the federal debt limit.
A spokesman for Palazzo said the ex-staffers "moved on to pursue new opportunities" and their resignations
won't affect Palazzo's work representing the 4th District.
"The congressman is committed to his job in the district," Hunter Lipscomb said.
Palazzo is chairman of the House science subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics, which has
jurisdiction over NASA. The panel recently held two hearings, including one on the future of the
agency's space exploration program.
Palazzo travelled to Florida for Friday's space shuttle launch, which was postponed. The congressman
returned to Mississippi to address tornado recovery efforts. Gonzaga Debate Institute 2011
