FILE - In this April 21, 2015 file photo, former President Bill Clinton listens while speaking at Georgetown University in Washington. A House panel has approved a bipartisan bill that would limit expenses for former presidents who earn more than $400,000 a year. Former presidents receive a pension of more than $200,000 a year, plus annual expenses that can add up to more than $1 million for office space and other costs. On a voice vote, the House Oversight panel backed the measure on Tuesday to limit taxpayer dollars for expenses, including travel. Clinton received $950,000 from taxpayers last year, while George W. Bush received $1.3 million, mostly for office space. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and other former presidents who earn millions in speaking fees would no longer be able to count on taxpayer dollars to pay for their post-White House office space and staff under a bill moving forward in the House.
