Cost of House Bill H.R. 4066
In-Depth: Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-OR) reintroduced this bill from the 114th Congress to prevent agencies’ budgets from automatically increasing based on inflation and create more transparency for agency budget increases.
This legislation has one cosponsor, Rep. Bill Flores (R-TX), in the 116th Congress. In the 114th Congress, it had 17 bipartisan cosponsors, including 10 Republicans and seven Democrats, and didn’t receive a committee vote.
This bill was first introduced in 2013 as part of the No Labels Problem Solvers Coalition’s bipartisan nine-bill Make Government Work! legislative package. All nine bills in the package were good-government bills. Cumulatively, they sought to fix everything from bulk purchasing to legislative inertia.
