Duplicative federal government programs are a waste of taxpayer dollars and agencies’ efforts. Eliminating these programs will help save money and reduce unnecessary spending. At a time of ballooning federal budgets and an out-of-control national deficit, this is of the utmost importance.
Since the CBO already produces an annual report detailing cost-saving opportunities across the federal government, there’s no need for this bill. Legislators who want to propose cost-saving measures for federal agencies can use the existing CBO report. Additionally, some duplication may be desirable.
