Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff’s bipartisan bill to cut waste and save taxpayer dollars has passed the U.S. Senate.
Sen. Ossoff’s bipartisan Eliminate Useless Reports Act with Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) would increase government efficiency by eliminating unnecessary Federal agency reports, saving taxpayer dollars and eliminating waste.
Sen. Ossoff’s bipartisan bill will reform a defunct process for Federal agencies to make recommendations about which Congressionally mandated reports should be sunset, consolidated, or reduced in frequency — helping eliminate unnecessary Federal spending.
“Taxpayer dollars are wasted on needless paperwork and red tape in the Federal government. I brought Republicans and Democrats together to cut waste and save taxpayer dollars,” said Sen. Ossoff.
Sen. Ossoff continues working to cut red tape within the Federal government.
Last year, Sen. Ossoff launched an inquiry with the Department of Transportation and the Department of Agriculture to cut red tape and help more Georgia families access car seats, a key to child safety.
Earlier this fall, Sen. Ossoff launched an inquiry with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) into excessive delays with the VA Board of Veterans Appeals (BVA), which decides whether or not veterans are entitled to claimed veterans’ benefits and services.
