H.R. 3609, Taxpayers Right-To-Know Act

Cost Estimate

As ordered reported by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on April 26, 2012

H.R. 3609 would require government agencies to identify and describe each program they administer, the cost to administer the program, expenditures for services, the number of program beneficiaries, and the number of federal employees and contract staff involved. Under the bill, that information would be posted on each agency’s Web site. In addition, H.R. 3609 would require an annual report by the Office of Management and Budget that identifies duplicative federal programs.
