Report on the Eliminate Useless Reports Act

You can read the whole report here (PDF). Trigger warning: “Includes bibliographical references.”


  1. von Hindenburg says:

    While, objectively, I realize that this could potentially be a good thing and that intelligent reduction of useless bureaucracy can require an initial bureaucratic investment, it certainly does feel like we’ve gone full Department of Administrative Affairs here. Somewhere, Sir Humphrey is smiling.

    • Dr. Boli says:

      You will notice that, to reduce useless bureaucracy, the Act would “require agencies to include a list of outdated or duplicative reporting requirements in annual budget justifications, and for other purposes.” In other words, they would have to compile a report. Naturally the report would have to be accompanied by a Paperwork Reduction Act notice.

  2. The Shadow says:

    Truth really is stranger than fiction.
