On Tuesday, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), Ranking Member of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and U.S. Senator Maggie Hassan (D-NH) introduced the Duplication Scoring Act, which seeks to reduce the size of government by eliminating duplicative programs and prevent further duplication within the federal government.
“As we fight to rein in current wasteful spending, this reform would better enable Congress to make more fully informed decisions by adding a layer of oversight that will help stop waste in government before it ever happens,” said Dr. Paul.
“We need to keep working together across the aisle to stop taxpayers’ hard-earned money going to waste,” said Senator Hassan. “Our bipartisan bill would tackle wasteful government spending by preventing the creation of duplicative federal programs and as a result save taxpayer dollars.”
