The oil cans are the latest in a series of awards handed out by the House GOP caucus to encourage members to take to the floor and express their views, Politico, a Washington publication, reported Wednesday.
"I've never won an oil can before," said Rep. Lynn A. Westmoreland, R-Ga., "We'll continue to work hard and maybe one day win a barrel."
"My parents will be very proud," Rep. Phil Gingrey, R-Ga., who also received an award, said to Politico.
A spokesman for Rep. Frank Pallone Jr., D-N.J., who runs the Democratic floor operation, told Politico his party doesn't have to hand out awards to get members to speak.
